College Road Dental Practice offers NHS dental services for adults and children, although access may be restricted due to high demand. Call 0121 373 1471 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 College Road Dental Practice you are still able to upgrade to aesthetic private options for any treatments, should you choose.
In England and Wales the fees for NHS examinations and treatments are subsidised by the NHS, with patients covering the balance. These prices are fixed and sit within 3 bands.
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.
