Please contact us personally for answers to any questions that you may have. Or better yet, why not pop in. and we will be pleased to advise you on any issues regarding your dental health. These are the only dental charges your dentist should ask you to pay when you are having NHS treatment. You should only have to pay one charge for each course of treatment - even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it.
If you need more treatment within the same charge band, for example an additional filling, within two months of completing a course of treatment, you will not normally have to pay anything extra. There is no charge for repairing dentures. To find out about free NHS dental treatment, see form HC1, Help with health costs, available at your local Job Centre Plus or from the Department of Health website at www.dh.gov.uk
Your NHS dentist should provide all the care and treatment needed to maintain your dental health. To find out more about what you can expect, you can either:

- Call NHS Direct on 111 or visit www.nhs.uk
- Go to the dentistry pages on the Department of Health www.dh.gov.uk/dental
We want you to be entirely satisfied with your care and treatment, but, if a filling, root filling, crown or bridge fails within a year we will provide free repair or replacement or a full or part refund, depending on the circumstances.
