Hygienist Fees 2023
At Cleobury Dental Practice, we are committed to keeping our fees as reasonable as possible and have avoided increasing our hygienists’ fees since May 2021. Nevertheless, year on year the costs of securing the essential services which underpin the safety and standards of your care have increased. We hope you will understand that we have absorbed these additional costs for as long as possible but it is now necessary to amend our hygienists’ fees from 1st January 2023. Our new hygienist appointment fee will be £69.50.
We strive to provide the very best standards of care that we can for our patients and membership of our private dental plan still remains the best way to budget for your dental appointments and hygienist visits, and to maintain your dental health. Our membership plan offers savings off our fees for regular check ups and hygiene visits compared to paying as you go.
Our dental plan is a great way to access our most affordable private dental care service with a host of benefits:
- The cost of your dental health checks and hygiene appointments is spread throughout the year with a convenient monthly direct debit, giving you peace of mind
- Your dental membership includes 2 dental health checks with one of our experienced dentists, and a choice of 2 or 4 hygienist visits per year, as well as 2 X-Rays per year (if needed)
- Access to convenient evening appointments
- Access to our Worldwide Dental Emergency Scheme which provides assistance in the event of dental trauma or a dental emergency
- 10% discount on most routine private dental treatments (exclusions do apply, please ask our reception team for further information)
- Urgent appointment fee (usually £50) is waived when you attend our practice for an emergency appointment (treatment required to treat the emergency is still chargeable)
* The Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme is a Scheme established to offer support and assistance to dental plan patients who request treatment following a dental trauma and/or dental emergency or oral cancer. The Scheme responds to requests for assistance on a wholly discretionary basis. This means that, whilst the Scheme aims to provide benefits in most cases, it has no obligation to provide any benefit unless it first decides (in its sole and absolute discretion) that it should provide a benefit. There are some circumstances in which the Scheme is not designed to help and these are explained in more detail in the Scheme Handbook. Each request will be looked at individually to assess the request for benefit. Certain restrictions and limitations may apply in the event that the request is accepted and it is possible that the Scheme will decide to provide no benefit.
** Exclusions apply to additional hygiene appointments, orthodontics, dental implants, sedation, oral surgery or restorative treatments carried out by our dentists with special interests.
*** The provision of routine examinations and hygiene visits is subject to receipt of the required consecutive monthly payments.
**** An initial administration fee of £9.50 will be collected with your first payment only.
