Find The Right Treatment


Dental emergency conditions can include anything from a broken tooth to wisdom tooth pain and dental abscesses. Depending on how urgently you need to see a dentist, you can visit a 24hr emergency dentist, a private dentist or an NHS dentist (although NHS appointments are rarely available at short notice). Private examinations tend to start from £45 and upwards (higher in central urban areas), while NHS examinations start at £18.80. Many private dentists offer financing options and dental discount plans for the treatments needed to address the emergency. Registering for a dentist in England is different from GPs; you don’t have to register and even if you do you are free to visit a new dentist at any time if you find a more suitable appointment or price.

I am definitely a person who is uncomfortable when visiting a dentist (mainly due to the terrible previous experiences with other dentists), but here I've had the best experience with a dentist thus far, starting with my 1st appointment, hence I wholeheartedly recommend BUPA DENTAL CENTRE - READING and I will certainly be returning here with my friends, colleagues and family members should the need arise. Mr. Aravind Sampath is amazing and his team is fantastic as well! Mr. Aravind Sampath, Ms/Mrs Hayley Preston, Ms/Mrs Jo from Reception and their other colleagues are all very welcoming, knowledgeable and true professionals. They made me feel comfortable during every visit, taking great care of me when I needed it most. They were very gentle, explaining everything in great detail and answering all my questions. My appointments felt like they flew by with minimal pain and no discomfort, so every visit was worth it. THANK YOU very much for the 5* service provided!!! Bupa Dental Centre Reading is a hi-tech facility with extremely professional staff, the entire clinic is immaculate, they have cutting-edge equipment and parking was never an issue. Therefore, if you are in need of a dentist, this is one you do not want to pass up. I am confident I won't ever need to go elsewhere. Wednesday, September 13. 2017
