Rarer than hen’s teeth?

NHS dentists can be rarer than hens’ teeth these days. If you are trying to find an NHS dentist in Oxford, and you live or work near the Headington Road, then why not come in and try Studental?

We are an NHS dentist in Oxford based on the campus of Oxford Brookes University on Headington Road. You may think, from our name, that we are only open to students at the university, but that is not the case. Everyone is welcome at Studental. The practice is housed in a building that has been designed with people with disabilities in mind. You will find lift access, extra-wide corridors and disabled toilets.

NHS Dentist in OxfordWhat treatments does the NHS offer?

You can get all the basic and necessary treatments on the NHS. There are 3 bands of prices.

Band 1

This is what you pay for check-ups, diagnoses including x-rays and preventive treatments such as a scale and polish or decay prevention with fluoride applications or fissure sealants. Band 1 treatments currently cost £21.60.

Band 2

If you need something more, band 2 covers everything in the above list, plus treatments like fillings, root canal work or tooth extractions.

Band 3

This band is for restorations, and covers all the treatments detailed above plus restorations such as bridges and dentures. Band 3 treatments cost £256.50.

What you can’t get on the NHS

The NHS does not cover cosmetic treatments, so if you want veneers, cosmetic bonding or cosmetic braces, you are going to have to pay private prices for them. You also have to pay private dentistry prices for dental implants.
