The thought of visiting the dentist is not a positive prospect for many people, and the potential for pain or discomfort are not the only reasons. Dental treatment is quite expensive and the overall cost can add up if you require extensive treatment.

Our aim is to provide high-quality, affordable and painless dental services to patients in Oxford, including university students who may not have a considerable budget for dental treatment. If you are looking for an NHS dentist in Oxford, don’t hesitate to call us.
At Studental we invest in the latest technology, so that we can provide the best restorative, preventive and cosmetic care possible. Our well-trained and experienced dental professionals provide dental services to both children and adults. These services include cleanings and dental hygiene care, fillings, root canal treatment and crowns, dental implants as well as teeth straightening solutions (including discreet braces).
What does NHS dental care entail?
Everyone is eligible for NHS dental care and they do not have to undergo a medical or dental examination prior to registering. As NHS patients, you have the right to refuse any treatment you are not happy with and to refuse payment for unsatisfactory treatment. NHS patients also have access to emergency dental treatment within 24 hours. At Studental, you can also choose to have private dental treatment through the NHS. The cost will differ based on the treatment you wish to undergo and your dental needs, but you will be able to choose from a wide range of treatments, including cosmetic dental treatments.
What is the cost of visiting the NHS dentist in Oxford?
Some patients are exempt from dental charges via the NHS. For the rest, there are three standard bands of charges carried out by the NHS or collaborating dentists. The first band costs £21.60 and included an examination, diagnosis and other preventive treatments (cleanings, fluoride treatment, fissure sealants). The second band costs £59.10 and covers everything included in the first band, plus restorative treatments such as root canals and fillings, whereas the third band costs £256.50 and is extended to crowns, bridges and dentures.
