    NHS dental care

    Caledonian Dental Care offers NHS dental services for adults and children, although access may be restricted due to high demand. Call us to check our latest availabilty.

    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 Caledonian Dental Care you are still able to upgrade to aesthetic private options for any treatments, should you choose.

    NHS dental care is free of charge for children under the age of 18, and for those under 19 and in full-time education. Dental care is also free on the NHS if you qualify for it under the NHS exempt criteria; for example, pregnant women qualify for free NHS dental care.
