NHS Dental Treatment charges V2 03.2024-02

NHS dental charges from 1 April 2024

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced the NHS dental patient charges uplift for 2024/25.

From 1 April 2024, NHS dental treatment charges in England will rise by 4%.

The cost of your dental treatment depends on what treatment you need, it will either be Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3. NHS dental charges from 1 April 2024 will be:

  • £26.80 for Band 1 course of treatment
  • £73.50 for Band 2 course of treatment
  • £319.10 for Band 3 course of treatment

Check if you’re eligible for free or reduced cost NHS dental treatment using the NHS eligibility checker at www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/check.

If you’re not exempt from charges, you will only pay one charge for each complete course of treatment, even if you need to go to the dentist more than once to finish it. Your dentist may collect this charge in instalments.
