Our fees for dental treatment on the NHS are dictated by the Department of Health.
You will be able to have all treatment provided under the NHS that your dentist feels is clinically necessary in order to keep your teeth, gums and mouth healthy. If your dentist says that you need a particular type of treatment, you should not be asked to pay for it privately.
You also do not have to pay if:
- you are included in an award of
- Income Support
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Pension Credit guarantee credit
- you are named on a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate, or you are entitled to an NHS tax credit exemption certificate
- you are named on a valid HC2 certificate.
You will not be exempt from paying because you receive Incapacity Benefit, contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance, contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, Housing Benefit, or Pension Credit savings credit, when paid on their own. Medical conditions do not exempt patients from payment for dental treatment.
