NHS Dental check-ups
The NHS provides the dental care you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and pain-free.
Prices are fixed and within bands, but the treatments included are limited. See NHS Restore for more information.
NHS dental check-ups are covered within Band 1, which is currently charged as below:
£21.60 in England & £14.00 in Wales NHS Band 1*
This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if clinically needed, and preventative care such as the application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant if appropriate.
Please note that a different pricing structure operates under Health Service dentistry in Northern Ireland and the NHS in Scotland.
* Availability may be limited and NHS dental care may not always be available due to government contract restrictions. For availability at your local practice, please visit their practice pages.
