What to expect from your NHS dental treatment: your Personal Dental Treatment Plan

Before you receive either Band 2 or Band 3 treatment, your dentist is obliged to give you with a Personal Dental Treatment Plan. This is a single A4 sheet of paper containing information about the treatment and care your dentist recommend on one side, and details about how to use NHS dental services on the other. If you are currently undergoing Band 2 or Band 3 treatment and have not yet been given one of these forms, please ask your dentist to provide one.

The work covered under band 2 and 3 are: –

  1. Examination
  2. Diagnosis (e.g. x-rays)
  3. Advice on how to prevent future problems
  4. Scale and polish
  5. Further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.
  6. Having a crown fitted
  7. Dentures made or
  8. Bridges
