NHS Care – “The NHS provides all the treatment necessary to secure and maintain your preventative care. There are some treatments (mainly cosmetic) that are not normally available under the NHS and you may choose to have these provided privately. You may also choose to have some treatment provided privately as an alternative to NHS treatment. The dentist will discuss these options with you so that you can make an informed choice.”
