Please be advised that we are no longer able to offer children check-ups and treatment covered by the NHS, as we now no longer have an NHS contract.
We will, of course, continue to offer check ups and the full range of treatments privately for children at the practice; referrals for orthodontic treatment will be made in the usual manner, where and when appropriate, and without charge. If your child would have been eligible for orthodontic treatment on the NHS prior to the switchover, they will still be eligible for NHS orthodontic treatment, going forward.
Our fees for private check up appointments for children will be as follows;
Child 0-6 yrs old (10 minute examination appointment) £15.00
Child 7-17 yrs old (20 minute examination appointment) £26.00
Any treatment needed will be advised & costs given at the end of the check-up appointment in the usual way.
Alternatively, if you would prefer your child to continue to be treated under the NHS at another practice, you can try searching for local NHS practices at https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-dentist, or alternately call 111 in the case of a dental emergency.
Thank you for your understanding with this matter.
We look forward to seeing you again at the practice soon!
The Team at Tavistock House
