NHS charges vary from year to year so call us to find out the current charges. Further information on NHS treatment and current charges can be found here. https://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/dentists/Pages/nhs-dental-charges.aspx In some cases, individuals may be exempt from paying for NHS treatment. To qualify for exemption you must fall in to one of the below categories and provide proof of the same:

  • Currently pregnant
  • Have had a baby in the last 12 months
  • Under 18 years of age
  • 18 and in full-time education

You’re included in an award of Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit guarantee credit or Universal credit (check entitlement after October 31 2015)

  • You’re named on, or entitled to, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
  • You’re named on a valid HC2 certificate

If you’re named on a valid HC3 certificate, you may not have to pay for all your NHS dental treatment. If you are unsure whether you are exempt from NHS dental care please speak to a member of our reception team who will be able to assist you. Please note that false declaration may result in a fine being imposed by the NHS. Heybridge Dental Practice will not be held accountable for patients falsely claiming an exemption.

COVID-19 Guidance

    Updated 26th March 2020     Thank you for your ongoing understanding as we continue through these unprecedented times. Our first is the health and safety of our patients and staff. We can assure you that we are closely monitoring government guidance. If you have any symptoms or concerns, please consult the latest NHS guidance https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ or use the online 111 services. Our practice is now on Covid-19 Dental Alert - as a result we will be operating a restricted Emergency Service only.     What if I have an appointment coming up?   Unfortunately, we are having to delay all routine and non-urgent treatments. If our reception team have not already contacted you to inform you of this and re-arrange your appointment, we would strongly advise calling us on 01621 851003 to re-arrange you appointment.     What if I need emergency dental treatment?   Please call us on 01621 851003. One of our team members will assist you as necessary. As per government advice, we will be doing all we can help you remotely and prevent you needing to leave your homes. Where this is not possible, one of our dentists will provide the appropriate advice.     If you are experiencing any symptoms of a coronavirus (high temperature or persistent cough), living with a family member who has these symptoms, are over the age of 70, or fall into the category of the more vulnerable or at-risk group, please do NOT leave you house and use the online 111 services for further guidance. The NHS team will triage and assess your options for a referral to a designated practice, which is accepting any Coronavirus urgent dental care cases.     Please refer to the link below for the latest government advice.   https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response     Thank you for your understanding.
