What is a treatment plan?

What is a treatment plan?

• A treatment plan is a document that sets out:

• any dental treatment you need, and

• roughly how much it may cost.

• We will give you a treatment plan at your first check-up and at other times when you need one. You can ask for a treatment plan any time you are having treatment. You can take a copy away.

Referral to another dentist

If you’re referred to another dentist to complete your treatment, the amount you pay is dependent on the type of referral and whether the NHS treatment is carried out as one course of treatment. Your dentist will inform you how much you have to pay.

If you’re referred to a private dentist (and you accept this option), you will:

  • pay the appropriate NHS banding charge to the dentist who referred you
  • also pay a fee for the dental work carried out by the private dentist you are referred to
