Your Local NHS Dentist
Proudly Serving Patients throughout Wallsend, Tyne and Wear
Any treatment necessary to maintain your oral health is available on the NHS. However, NHS dentistry requires people to contribute to the cost of their dental care. Some treatments (mainly cosmetic) are not available under the NHS but you can choose to have these treatments carried out privately.
NHS charges depend on the type of treatment and the NHS ‘band’ the treatment falls into.
Registering under the NHS is free at Family Dental Practice and takes just minutes to do. We are happy to accept new NHS and private patients! For any further information regarding free NHS treatments and eligibility, get in touch.
