East Ayton Dental Practice Ltd Payment policy

 It is our practice policy to give patients full information about the cost of their dental work before any treatment is undertaken. This may be done verbally and recorded in the notes especially if urgent treatment is being carried out  A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for all dental treatment  We offer patients a range of payment options, depending on their needs. You may pay for your dental care by cash, or credit/debit card. Private patients may also join the “Denplan” care scheme. Please ask our receptionist for further information.  We try to make payment as straightforward as possible. Our normal policy is that private patients are asked to pay a proportion each visit to cover treatment carried out at that time. All payments must be received before laboratory work is fitted.  NHS payments are due at the start of a course of treatment. We will ask for payment after your initial examination, before treatment appointments are booked. For treatment involving laboratory work (crowns, bridges, dentures) full payment must be made at the appointment prior to the item being fitted. We no longer accept personal cheques for payment. We will continue to accept them for payment from business and solicitors accounts. For further information please speak to the receptionist.
