NHS dental treatment provides basic treatment to achieve dental health; it doesn't include any cosmetic treatment (such as white fillings to posterior teeth).
To receive NHS treatment it is essential to be registered with an NHS dentist. It can be difficult to find a dentist willing to accept NHS patients and this is why increasingly patients are opting for private dental treatment and why gradually at Marchmont Dental Care we are providing more private treatment.
Private treatment can be carried out in one of two ways; using dental payment plans (where the patient pays a pre-arranged monthly fee by direct debit) or on a ‘pay as you go’ basis (where the patient pays a private fee for the treatment received at the end of each visit).
Private treatment enables the dentists here at Marchmont Dental Care in Edinburgh to devote more time to you the patient. It means we are able to offer you more individual attention, provides us with optimal conditions and therefore allows us to provide treatment of the highest possible standard. We are able to use the best quality materials and the most up-to-date techniques and equipment to produce dentistry that will last longer. We can also carry out cosmetic dentistry to give you the smile that you desire.
As a patient of Marchmont Dental Care you can rest assured that a treatment plan detailing your individual requirements will be discussed with you and a clear estimate of the costs involved will be provided before your treatment begins.
Should there be a number of treatment options available, we will discuss the pros and cons of each with you so that you are able to make an informed decision on which you would prefer.
