NHS Fees

We believe in providing the best care possible for all of our patients. This means that our dentists who provide  NHS dental care, charge fees that are set by the government and not the practice. Many patients are exempt from NHS dental charges and do not need to pay anything. Find out if you are exempt from dental charges here.

NHS Dental fees vary depending on the type of treatment that you require, as a result every persons situation will be slightly different. At Craigentinny, we will always provide you with a full printed estimate of costs before any treatment is carried out.  NHS treatment is designed to provide care to secure and maintain health and function, where appropriate our dentists are also able to offer more aesthetic treatment options on a private basis,

Children are treated free within the NHS and Adult NHS fees can be seen here. NHS treatments usually have a 12 month Guarantee
