Here, at Wensleydale Dental Practice, we are proud to offer patients NHS dentistry. This includes all treatments our dentists believe is necessary to maintain good oral hygiene but excludes any treatments that are considered as cosmetic e.g. tooth whitening.
If you are an NHS patient who would like to receive a one off private treatment, please discuss this with your dentist. They are able to perform private treatments, whilst you remain an NHS patient of our practice.
The practice receives a certain amount of funding each year from NHS England – Midlands and East (East), which allows us to see and treat the general public on the NHS. We constantly monitor our NHS funding and capacity, which allows us to budget for NHS treatments and when able, to see further NHS patients.
We are sorry to say that the funding is not endless, and whilst we do our very best to accommodate patients and treatments, you may find from time to time that you might have to wait longer for an appointment than what is usually expected. If for any reason, you are unable to wait for the given appointment date, please speak with your dentist about private options available to you.
