Not all dental treatments can be carried out in a domiciliary setting and there may be the need to refer the patient on to hospital. Each patient will be individually assessed by the dentist and a full treatment plan, including costs, will then be discussed before any treatment is decided upon.
Home visits have a call out charge of £100 and all treatment costs are the same as in practice. These prices can be found in the fees section click Here. We ask that this payment is made in advance of the appointment. This can either be done at the practice, by bank transfer or a check in the post. We will then send out a receipt.
Please could the patient ensure that the location the treatment is done will have access to water and electricity. Please make sure that all pets are removed from the treatment and secured safely in another room.
