NHS TREATMENTS

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

 

PRACTICE UPDATE To all our lovely patients. Thank you so much for all your patience and understanding since we were told to close our practice. It has been a difficult time for all, and we hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. We have been available during our normal opening hours for emergency advice and triaging throughout. We were pleased to hear the recent Government announcement that dental practices can reopen from the 8th of June. We have been working very hard to get as close to this date as possible. As we look ahead SAFETY will be the most important element. We will be using the first week to train our staff and update our policies and protocols, as well as continuously sourcing the necessary personal protective equipment. We hope we can open on the 15th of June for emergency assessments for patients who are in Pain, and provide a limited range of treatments.

As the restrictions start to ease we plan to prioritise our patients that had appointments canceled or problems during the lockdown period. It will be a slow transition to routine care and full range of services. You will notice your patient journey will be somewhat different to what you have been used to. We will be using our website, social media and emails to communicate these changes. Please lookout for these updates! Please do not come to the practice without a pre booked appointment.

We very much look forward to seeing you all soon, and getting back to the ‘new norm’
