Cripps Dental Centre offers a full range of NHS treatments to patients dependant upon their commitment to maintaining oral health. NHS dental treatment includes all treatment necessary to secure and maintain your oral health. We have agreed with Nottingham City PCT to provide NHS services for primarily staff and students of Nottingham University and for local population if there is enough funding available. The contract for these services is held by Dr. Patrick Carroll.
The NHS price structure is now determined by the changes made in April 2006 with treatment falling into three bands.
Please see our NHS charges page to see examples of the NHS fee structure.
Some treatments are not available under the NHS but your dentist will give you a fully itemised treatment plan, listing all the options available to you at the time of your check-up.
You may qualify for full or partial exemption from charges, please ask for advice or see our Frequently asked questions page.
Patients also have the option of having private treatment. We provide a full range of private options for patients who choose to have treatment that is not available under the NHS – for example large white fillings in back teeth or cosmetic treatment such as tooth whitening. The poster in our waiting room has information about the cost of NHS treatment. Your dentist will advise you of the cost of any private treatment. Please see our examples of Private Charges
We also provide the following specialist services which are available on a private basis only.
Hygienist sessions for the cosmetic removal of tartar and staining with comprehensive oral hygiene instruction
Orthodontic treatment and advice by our consultant and specialist Orthodontist Dr. Steven Clark
We can refer you to another dentist if you require specialist treatment involving sedation, orthodontics or a home visit for people meeting qualifying criteria.
Any treatment required which is not available on the NHS, mainly cosmetic, will be available on a private basis. Your dentist will be happy to discuss these with you.
There is also the option of being referred for an implant consultation by a Specialist Oral surgeon. This is a private service also as the NHS do not routinely provide implant restorations.
Denplan patients can also be seen.
