NHS dental care

Westhill Dental & Implant Clinic offers NHS dental services for children, up to the age of 18 years, or 19 years if in full time education, are seen under NHS arrangements.

At the age of 18 years, or 19 years if in full time education, patients are offered the option to join Denplan Essentials at a very reduced rate. This option is extended until their 25th birthday when the patient can opt to join Denplan Essentials at the adult rate.

The NHS provides essential dental care only, which patients require to keep their mouths, teeth and gums healthy and pain-free.

It does not offer cosmetic treatments or advanced treatments such as dental implants, and uses functional rather than aesthetic materials within treatments. As an example, NHS treatment would use amalgam (silver metal) for fillings, rather than a white filling, which will blend better with the natural teeth.

However even as an NHS patient, at Westhill Dental & Implant Clinic you are still able to upgrade to aesthetic private options for any treatments, should you choose.
