NHS vs Private Dentistry

At Old Kent Road Dental Studio our aim is simple: to provide high quality private dental care at NHS prices.

How does it work?

We charge similar prices to those of NHS dentistry (to non exempt patient) for dental exams, xrays and NHS equivalent treatments. We then also offer a choice of cosmetic dental treatments to suit all needs and budgets.

As a team of approachable, highly experienced and highly trained dental professionals, we are keen to do our best to help our patients smile with confidence, in a way that won’t break your pocket… or the bank!

Offering the best of both worlds;, we have the freedom of a private dentist to offer natural-looking, long-lasting and high quality treatments and affordable dental care that you can rely upon at all times.

What is the difference between NHS and Private dentistry?

NHS dentistry has a clinical focus: this includes all treatment necessary to secure and maintain your oral health and, where necessary, to restore function in the most cost effective way possible.

Private dentistry has a clinical focus that is supported by a preventive and aesthetic element: this includes making additional time for dental check-ups, hygiene appointments and restoring teeth in the most minimally evasive and natural-looking way possible.

In brief, both NHS and Private dentistry aim to ensure that you have healthy teeth for life. The main difference between NHS and private dental treatment, is the time and materials you are provided with.
