Finding an NHS dentist in Oxford

It can be difficult to find a dentist accepting new NHS patients sometimes, but here at Studental Dental Care, we are currently accepting new NHS patients of all ages, not just students. Whether it’s time for a check-up or you need emergency treatment, you can give us a call. Treatment available on the NHS The NHS covers clinical treatments that your NHS dentist in Oxford feels are necessary. This doesn’t include cosmetic treatments, but does include any treatment required to keep your teeth and mouth healthy and pain-free. Dentures, crowns and bridges are all available on the NHS, as well as the usual fillings. Braces and dental implants are sometimes covered, but only if your NHS dentist in Oxford thinks there is a medical need for them. NHS charges You will still need to pay for NHS dental treatment, but the fees are generally lower than private treatment fees. NHS charges are split into 3 bands. Band 1 covers a check-up, as well as any necessary x-rays, scale and polish, and further treatment planning. It also incudes adjusting braces or dentures and applying sealants or fluoride treatments to the teeth.
