My tooth recently cracked whilst I was eating. I went to the dentist (a private one as I can’t get an NHS dentist). He took x rays and told me that I have a number of problems with my teeth. He suggested a couple of gold onlays and also another filling. In total this will cost me over £2000 (the breakdown is below). I wanted to know if this is a reasonable price.

But other than that - the charges are about inline with what I'd charge.
Obviously - I cant comment on the actual treatment plan - but the charges are pretty average
1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.
