Update to Fee Schedule

Updated: 26 February 2021

We regret to inform you of a fee increase for our treatments as a result of events over the past year, this increase will come into effect on the 1st of April 2021.

We have held off with any fee increase for as long as we can and have monitored the situation carefully over the last 12 months but have now reached a stage where continually absorbing the increasing costs of operating is unsustainable.

There are a number of reasons that have led us to take this decision:

  1. We have increased our usage of vital PPE supplies. The cost to buy these supplies has also gone up, in some cases by 300%. Conversely our colleagues in NHS dentistry do not pay anything for their PPE.  Whilst many practices have imposed a PPE surcharge of up to £30.00 per visit we have strenuously avoided this and will continue to do so.
  2. We have employed additional staff to ensure we exceed safety protocols and maintain the smooth running of the practice.
  3. Due to the introduction of fallow time (an enforced gap between aerosol generating procedures) to further increase everybody’s safety, we are seeing substantially fewer patients per day than we used to.
  4. Costs associated with inflation have seen the price of materials and laboratory fees increase significantly over the last 6 months.

We are optimistic that 2021 will see increased confidence all round but at the same time are acutely aware that many of the safety measures are likely to remain if not permanently then for a considerable period.

The practice initially invested over £60,000 in safety equipment at the start of the COVID pandemic which has not only enabled us to open as quickly as possible but exceed many safety measures. In contrast, some practices in the UK still remain closed.

We continue to offer our full range of services and treatments whilst keeping everyone safe. Having reviewed prices locally and nationally we are confident that we are still very highly competitive.

For those patients on our monthly Silver and Gold payment plans, we have decided to keep these payments unchanged.
