Fees and Payment Choices

We are aware that this is often the deciding factor when patients make decisions to proceed with treatment or seek treatment elsewhere.

The scope of work necessary for each patient can vary enormously. It is simply not possible to create a comprehensive guide to exact fees that may be involved for any given treatment.

We work towards a result and therefore do not have a "fee per item" fee structure but rather a time and costs-based fee strucuture whic may be differnt to most other practices. What we charge (and how much it costs us to carry out treatment to a high standard) depends not only on what we plan to do, but often more significantly on how we plan to do it and the steps required to get to a given result. This may sometimes take many months or 1-2 years to complete in stages. During this time, our overheads will also rise so the duration of treatment also needs to be considered.

Individual customised estimates will always be provided after sufficient information has been gathered from your consultation appointment(s). However, a guide is included below to allow an appraisal of ballpark figures prior to attending the practice so that you're aware of the levels of investment likely to be involved for the standard of work we provide.

Please be assured that we always endeavour to be as cost effective as possible, but the scope of work that we carry out, especially where extensive, full-mouth dentistry is being carried out, is often tremendously time-consuming and labour-intensive and our fees must necessarily reflect this.

FLEXIBLE WAYS TO PAY

We offer:

  • 50% in advance, 50% near the end of treatment
  • 1/3 in advance, 1/3 midway through treatment and 1/3 near the end of treatment
  • Payment plans extending from 6-24 months interest-free and up to 5 years interest-bearing (Braemar Finance)
  • 7.5% fee reduction for full advance payment of estimate
  • Standing order for equal amounts over duration of treatment following a 1/3 deposit
  • We can also discuss other arrangements depending on the particular estimate and timetable for any given case.
  • Bartercard for selected courses of treatment
