We aim to provide preventative dentistry to help you avoid extensive dental treatments. The NHS tells us how we must charge you for NHS dental services and the amount you pay depends on the treatments you need. However, some people are exempt from the charges:
The amount you pay for dental treatments is capped. Treatments fall into three bands and are shown below:
You will also receive a written personal plan of care if you mix NHS and private treatments.
Once your teeth and gums are declared healthy, you will be asked to book for a check-up at an interval as advised by your dentist. At that time, the treatment charges start again, so if your teeth are still healthy at your next appointment, you will only be charged £23.80 for the examination, scale and polish (where required).
A bridge is just one of the options available for replacing missing teeth.
You may require a partial denture to replace gaps in your teeth or a full denture to replace all of your original teeth.

Veneers provide a quick and effective way of hiding cracked, stained or misshaped teeth.
Reception staff are always friendly and professional, never a problem. Megan who has been my dentist for several years now is amazingly attentive and friendly - particularly given how busy she is, a real breath of fresh air these days
I can't recommend this dental practice highly enough, visited recently as a new patient requiring treatment. I found the reception staff to be most welcoming, approachable, and professional. The dentist and nurse work well together, you feel instantly at ease with them. Anon, NHS Choices (Rugby Dental Practice, Warwickshire)
Very happy with this practice. Our family of five have been with this practice for 12 years. Have only praise for this team. All three children were referred for orthodontic work and I have had a few issues which were always dealt with efficiently. I flew in from abroad having suffered from a painful infection needing urgent treatment and saw the dentist within hours of landing. Highly recommended.
