NHS Dental Practices across Birmingham and the Black Country 

Access quality and affordable care with our NHS dental services. We are proud to offer NHS treatment to ensure that dental care is accessible and affordable to all. We offer the full range of NHS treatments for patients of all ages.

NHS dental treatment is available at all Bhandal Dental practices to ensure that all those in need can access the treatment they need to protect and care for their teeth.

NHS treatment includes routine check-ups for adults and children as well as any treatment needed for dental problems such as decay or gum disease. NHS treatment is available for a range of necessary dental treatments, including orthodontic care for children if needed. The provision of NHS dental care makes sure essential treatment is always accessible. While NHS treatment does carry a cost, those most in need should qualify for an exemption, including:

  • Patients under the age of 18
  • Expectant mothers and nursing mothers
  • Those in receipt of certain benefits

Why do we offer NHS treatment?

The aim of all NHS dental treatment is to protect your natural teeth and your dentist will work to identify any potential problems before they become an issue. Regular NHS dental check-ups are an important part of this and most patients should expect to make these routine visits, which will include a scale and polish if needed, every six to 12 months.

NHS dental treatment supports preventative treatment as well as repair. Your dentist may suggest additional preventative treatment, such as applying fluoride varnish or carrying out a scale and polish. Repair work may mean that a patient needs a tooth extracted or a crown or bridge fitted as part of their NHS dental care.

When treatment is needed to protect the teeth from further damage, NHS dental costs will only need to be paid once. The amount that you need to pay for NHS treatment will depend on the level of care needed to keep your teeth healthy. Once a cost has been set by the dental practice, this will remain the same even if repeat visits to the dentist are required to complete the course of treatment.

Frequently asked questions

How can we help?

Yes, we are currently accepting new patients in many of our dental practices. Due to the backlog from the Covid-19 pandemic, there may be a wait to arrange your initial consultation, but we are working to shorten the waiting times.

You can access a wide range of preventative and restorative treatments on the NHS. This includes routine examinations, scale and polish, fillings, root canal, extractions, crowns, dentures and bridges.

From a patient care perspective, there is no difference. You will be treated with the same level of excellent care whether you are an NHS or private patient. Treatments available on the NHS may be more limited than private care, and there are no cosmetic treatments available.

The waiting list for children's orthodontics has always been long, but the Covid-19 pandemic has increased waiting times as many children had to delay the start of their treatment. If you are concerned that your child could "age out" of the free orthodontics threshold, private treatment is available in many of our dental practices.

  • I recently visited Dr. Dorsa for a dental procedure, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Dr. Dorsa is not only incredibly professional but also exceptionally patient and kind. She has a unique way of making you feel calm and comfortable throughout the entire treatment process. What I appreciated most was her willingness to describe each step of the procedure, which really helped alleviate any anxiety I had. I highly recommend Dr. Dorsa to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate dentist.

  • I recently underwent Invisalign and whitening with Dr Simran and Demi, and couldn’t be more satisfied with the results!From the initial consultation to final adjustments, their level of care and attention to detail was truly outstanding.Dr Simran’s expertise and professionalism were evident from the get go. She took time to thoroughly explain the treatment process and answered all my questions with patience and clarity. Demi was equally fantastic, keeping me updated with the next steps and making each visit a pleasant one.I am so pleased with the results!! I highly recommend :)

  • Dr Dorsa and her Dental Nurse where amazing. I have Dentophobia, and always find treatments really hard to cope with, but Dr Dorsa and her Nurse where really supportive and reassuring, they made me feel so much at ease and ensured I was okay throughout my treatment. I felt very much looked after as an individual person. Thank you to Dr Dorsa and her Nurse and Bhandal Dental Staff in Blackheath, Rowley Regis.

  • My third visit to Dr Dorsa today. I have advanced gum disease & needed deep cleaning sessions to minimise effects of this. My individual treatment plan clearly explained including how to improve dental hygiene at home. Dr Dorsa delivered treatment in a sensitive caring manner & today’s results show a marked improvement to my gum health. Very happy with service provided & can recommend.
