NHS Dental Charges and treatmemt within two months

Found 10th Oct 2016
Hi,

I chipped a tooth about a month ago which has since had a filling.

Just my luck, another tooth on the other side of my mouth chipped on Saturday.

If I get an appointment within two months do I need to pay the second band of treatment again?

Also if I do manage to get an appointment but need another appointment and it's after the two month period, will I still be covered? (only reason I ask is that I needed two appointments for the first tooth that chipped, one for the assessment and one for the filling).

Thanks.

You are allowed further treatment in the same payment bracket for two months from the completion of the initial treatment. So, yes, you are covered.

Do not ask or take an emergency appointment as you will not be covered for this (happened to me)

eek, the receptionist said it would be a different dentist, thought this wouldn't be a problem.

You should be okay.

But be sure to ask first.

Also, stop eating rocks.

They said because I booked in for another appointment with a different dentist (this Thursday) that I wouldn't be covered.

So I was told that if they book me with with my original dentist for next Monday, they will "try" to get my treatment record back?

I don't understand the issue here, it's as if she was making out that I had already gone to see a different dentist, I only made the appointment a few hours ago.
