Find The Right Treatment


NHS dentists offer basic treatments that keep your teeth and gums healthy. The mostcommon treatments include check-ups, root canals, fillings, crowns and dentures. Cosmetic treatments such as teeth straightening are not covered. NHS treatments in England fall into three price bands (currently £18.80, £51.30 or £222.50). You may be eligible for free NHS treatment if you are pregnant, on certain benefits, or if you are under 18 and in fulltime education. Please note that some dentists may not take on new NHS patients all year round. However, unlike with GPs you are free to move around to see whichever dentist you choose (in any area) – so even if you have registered with a practice you can visit another one if they can offer you an appointment sooner.

I’m terrified of going to the dentist. I was put at ease and reassured. Shivani was great. Resolved my problem. Would recommend. Tuesday, June 19. 2018
I cannot speak highly enough over the care I received and this is coming from someone who has a fear of dentists, which of course always shows in the end when you need them because you haven't looked after your teeth as you should have. Dr Neha is very clear & precise in what you require and so far has delivered what she has said with great care and no pain. I have more treatment to come but I am sure this will be delivered in the same exemplary manner. all I can say is if you need a dentist then don't hesitate to go to Riverside Dental Spa.

So pleased to see Emma again should have sought her out earlier and saved myself a lot of uncertainty. Thursday, May 24. 2018
