Lansdown Dental Practice

NHS vs Private

At Lansdown Dental Practice in Birmingham our dentists provide both NHS and private dental care. As a NHS and private practice, patients can benefit from the best of both worlds.

For the more basic aspects of dentistry such as dental examinations, fillings, dentures, etc, NHS dentistry offers great value for money. All our NHS patients receive a very high level of dental care and are very happy with the service they receive.

Private patients enjoy a wider choice of treatments and materials, as they can also choose from those not funded by the NHS. For example, the NHS will only fund amalgam fillings on back teeth, not the tooth-coloured ones which most of our patients prefer.

Preventive care is vital to help you to keep your teeth and gums healthy and so we offer hygienist appointments. Unfortunately, these are only available on a private basis.

NHS patients can choose a private treatment option if they wish without it affecting their NHS status. For example, if you want a tooth coloured filling on a back tooth instead of a more visible amalgam one, if you want to invest in a hygienist appointment, or if you would like to enhance your smile, we will be more than happy to help.

Please talk to us if you have any questions about NHS and private options.
