Accepting new NHS patients now

The NHS provides the basic dental care you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. NHS dental care with Manchester Dental Practice has no hidden fees, just great service. We believe that everyone should have access to a healthy smile.

In England the cost of examinations and treatments are subsidised by the NHS, with patients covering the balance. These prices are fixed and sit within bands.

NHS dental care is free for children under the age of 18, and for those under 19 and in full-time education. It is also free on the NHS if you fall under any of the NHS exemption criteria; for example, you are pregnant women.

For more information on who is entitled to free NHS dental treatment, visit the NHS website.

What does NHS Dental Care cover?

NHS dental care provides fundamental treatment aimed at maintaining your oral health. This embraces: dental examinations, fillings, root fillings, crowns, bridges and dentures.
Additional treatments such as orthodontic (teeth straightening) treatments and dental implants are available on the NHS too, providing there is a proven medical justification for them. They are most commonly offered to children under 18, who have qualify treatment.

What NHS Dental Care does not cover?

NHS dental treatments offer basic treatments to dental problems in order to maintain good oral health. Cosmetic treatments or advanced treatments can fall outside of NHS cover. Our dentists will explore your options with you including the range of private treatment alternatives available.
