NHS Dentistry

Plumfield Dental Practice is committed to a high standard of NHS care for the community.

NHS treatment consists of treatment which is needed to treat dental diseases, such as decay and gum disease, as well as treatments to restore and maintain dental fitness. This also includes preventative treatments and regular check-ups, as prescribed by your dental professional.

Any treatment which is not deemed necessary by your dentist to maintain your dental health and fitness, such as cosmetic treatments, would be undertaken on a private basis only.
