How To Register With A Dentist

Visiting your dentist can be a bit like walking into the unknown. You won’t know what dental work you need or its cost until you sit in the chair.

Even if nothing is specifically wrong, your dentist might still recommend a preventative treatment, such as a scale and polish. But how much would this cost you?

Treatment costs vary depending on the requirements of the patient and the payment route they choose. Some consultations are free of charge, but in most cases, you’ll be required to contribute towards the cost of your care, even on the NHS. This can amount to as much as 80% of your treatment.

Of course, we will never carry out any dental treatment without discussing the process and costs with you first.

Registering with a dentist

Our dental practice is entirely patient focussed. We make it our priority to cater to you and your needs, no matter what they might be.

That’s why we offer a diverse range of care and payment options. We provide both NHS treatment and private care. We also provide our own comprehensive and affordable dental plan, which is covered by monthly payments.

If you would like to receive treatment at our surgery, you will first have to register with us as a patient. We will then arrange an initial consultation appointment for you.

To take advantage of our fantastic dental plan and discuss your options further, please call our practice to inquire about registration.

How much is a dental check-up?

Regular visits to your dentist are crucial in maintaining your overall oral health. General check-ups are considered an NHS dental treatment and are provided free of charge. 

However, your dentist will likely recommend further treatment as a result of your check-up. Frequent professional cleaning is essential in preventing gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious health complications and tooth loss. You will have to pay for part of this treatment.

Alternatively, we offer a private check-up service. Not only will your dentist take a deeper dive into your oral health, but they can provide you with a broader range of treatment options.

For example, in the case of tooth loss, an NHS dentist will be able to offer you core restorative treatments such as crowns, bridges or dentures. Private dentists have the resources to provide you with highly effective cosmetic treatments like veneers and dental implants.

The benefits of a private check-up include:

  • Less rushed appointments
  • More thorough treatments
  • A more comprehensive range of treatment options
  • Shorter waiting times and quicker resolutions

Alternatively, we offer The Dee Dental Plan, purposefully curated to provide affordable and convenient dental cover to our patients. Our dental plan covers both of your yearly check-ups and visits to the hygienist. It also provides discounts for further care, such as root canal treatments.

How much is private dental care?

Private care varies in cost depending on the dental treatment you require and the specific surgery. Although more expensive than NHS dental charges, some people prefer to pay for the benefits that come with private treatments. These include:

  • More modern facilities
  • Course of treatment tends to be quicker
  • More advanced cosmetic treatment included
  • Ability to choose a dentist
