NHS Dentistry

Laurel Villa has provided NHS dental care in the St Helens area for a number of years. The practice continues to believe in a quality service for all the family, and new patients are always welcome.

The provision of NHS dentistry is currently divided into ‘bands’ of care. These are as follows:

  • Band 1 course of treatment – £21.60
    This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if clinically needed, and preventative care such as the application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant if appropriate.
  • Band 2 course of treatment – £59.10
    This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or removal of teeth but not more complex items covered by Band 3.
  • Band 3 course of treatment – £256.50
    This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures, bridges and other laboratory work.
  • Emergency dental treatment – £21.60 
    This covers emergency care in a primary care NHS dental practice such as pain relief or a temporary filling.
