The benefits of an NHS dentist over a private dentist.

You’ve probably seen plenty of adverts in York for private dental services. If you’re wondering why you don’t see adverts for the NHS, it’s because an NHS dentist doesn’t need to spend so much money on marketing. UK citizens have a very good idea of the high quality of treatment they can get at the reduced NHS price and they’re pleased to have this service.

During every general election, the security of the future of the NHS is considered a deciding factor for many voters, which tells you a lot about how much the British nation values its health service. Why then, do so many people overlook the benefits an NHS dentist can provide? There’s no difference in the quality of treatment a dentist provides to his or her NHS and private customers!

NHS dentist treatments

NHS dentists have a commitment to their patients to keep their teeth and gums healthy. If you are an NHS patient, you will see your dentist every six months to a year for a dental check up and clean to ensure you’re not harbouring any tooth decay, or that you’re not suffering from gum disease.

Should you need a filling or more advanced treatment, you will then be called back for further appointments. Even some braces are available on the NHS. All of this will be heavily subsidised thanks to your monthly national insurance contribution.

Private dental care

Private dental clinics are great for providing luxury cosmetic treatment. Want your fillings to be colour-matched to your existing teeth? Want your orthodontic tooth straightening treatment to be ultra discreet? A private dentist can provide you with the option of choosing that. Implants or artificial teeth, which can be inserted into the jawbone, do the same job as traditional dentures, but at a fraction of the price.

As a British taxpayer, you are fortunate to have access to a health care system that provides you with the same quality of care as private dental treatment, but at a far reduced cost. Blossom Dental offers you the best of both worlds; exceptional NHS family dentistry, with the option to pay extra for luxury treatments.

If you want more refined, natural-looking fillings, implants or discreet braces, we’ll simply charge you extra. What we’re not going to do is charge you extra for a service that is your right as a British citizen. We are open to new NHS patients. We are highly trained and experienced dentists who afford the same level of care and support to NHS and private customers.

NHS check-ups for the rest of your life will keep your teeth healthy and prevent you from brewing up dental problems in the future. If you’d like to join our practice, please give our friendly team a call to make your first appointment.
