    Can she not ask the dentist/practice which is carrying out the procedure?
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    What's wrong with the Health Forum, where almost all other dental-related threads go..?

    When I've stopped laughing at Colin's comment..

    I agree with elsien - surely if she has an appointment booked she would have asked how much it was going to cost? and she must've already seen her dentist if she knows what work needs doing...didn't she ask him the cost of her treatment?

    I'm not disputing that she might have issues, or indeed have bad days...my point is, if she was able to go to her pre appointment assessment, and speak to the dentist about what treatment was needed, then she could have asked the cost of said treatment too.

    NHS dentists have a price banding system. I picked up a leaflet from my practice this morning which gave the bands and prices. For what you’ve said it falls into band 2 which is £44.

    You should be able to pick up a similar leaflet. Also charges for treatment should be given before treatment I think. (Ours always is).

    Edit: should have said this is Wales

    Band 1 (check-ups) Wales: £14.00. England: £20.60.
    Band 2 (fillings, removals) Wales: £44.00. England: £56.30.
    Band 3 (crowns, dentures, bridges) Wales: £190. England: £244.30.

    Scotland and Northern Ireland also have different Dental charge system as they are still fee per item so charge will vary according to size of fillings etc.

    In all the countries if you have NHS Dental treatment you should be given a fp17dc form , or equivalent treatment plan , which details what you will be charged and what treatment you will be having .
