NHS Dental Care to Rise by 8.5%

dental insurance

As charges for NHS dental services in England are set to rise by 8.5% on 24th 2023 April, is it time to consider dental insurance, to ensure unexpected costs from your dentist? At Get Dental Plans, we offer a range of dental insurance plans to cover companies.

The cost of a check-up is set to rise from £22.70 to £23.80, as part of an increase to dental charges announced recently. This change will only apply in England, as Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland set their own dental charges.

How are NHS dental charges changing?

Band one charges – which cover basic care including check-ups, diagnosis and advice will be rising from £22.70 to £23.80.

Band two charges – which cover procedures such as root canals, fillings and removing teeth will be rising from £62.10 to £65.20.

Band three charges – which cover more complicated procedures such as crowns and dentures will be rising from £269.30 to £282.50

With the cost of living rising, this is a big increase to everyday dental costs, especially when alot of them can be unexpected. This is also being quoted by the BDA as another reason why more dentists are moving away from the NHS when they can no longer offer affordable dental care

Dental insurance plans are a great way to save yourself and your employees from the unexpected costs of dental treatments. We have a wide variety of dental insurance plans for companies that can cover treatments such as fillings and extractions, to implants or tooth whitening.
