    NHS Dentist charges

    I went for a check up and had xrays that uncovered a hole that needs filling. The check up cost £18.50, which I paid. I'm going for the filling next week and that costs £50.50 but does that include the original check up and do I only have to pay the balance of £32.00?

    In short - yes. You only pay £32

    If you have to be referred for treatment later on, the cost of the original checkup should be removed from the cost of the next band of treatment that you require.

    I had a checkup, and one of my crowns had cracked, so I had the whole tooth removed in the end because it wasn't worth re-crowning again. Checkup at the time cost me £17.50, and the remaining cost was £32 when I had the tooth removed.

    Usually when I have a checkup I have to pay for that then if I need a filling it's another appointment and the price is £45.

    Either way still cheaper than private dentistry where they seem to make up the prices on the spot!

    I had to have a root canal done on one of my front teeth (Dentist thought it may have been due to having braces - the tooth next to it moved a long way and they thought that could have damaged it). They asked if I could have it done privately because the root was wonky or something and they didn't know if they could do it effectively. £350 later and back in to remove the temporary filling the private dentist did, so all in approx £400! Oh well at least I got a free white filling as it was a front tooth! Also the private dentist took a photo of my tooth to take to a talk on root canals because of how little discolouration it had!

    I'm on Level 1 of this, which is win win if you wear glasses and go to the dentist.

    https://www.simplyhealth.co.uk/sh/pages/newbusiness/hcp/quote.jsp?_requestid=17844

    £130 a year but I can claim £180 back.

    i was private from birth to 18 when we had to pay for the work, couldnt afford over 200 for 2 fillings and a checkup so left them for nhs, had to have 4 fillings and some other work and cost a fraction of the price of private

    I;m with them as well - they're great
    Also, they seem to have a deal with our Uni, so I have a custom scale (somewhere between 1 & 2 - £100 for dental and £100 for glasses)

    Would recommend them if anyone is looking....

    I paid £12 here for a checkup, scale and polish the other week, my wife paid that also, she has to go back at the end of next week for a filling and thats around £32 seperate to what has been paid already.

    Thats correct, our prescriptions are free too, I think there's still a charge in England ?

    Car park charges have gone here thankfully, used to be a proper PITA in the local hospitals when visiting.
