Important information regarding your child’s dental care

3rd February 2021

It has always been a pleasure to look after your children’s dental health here at Guinea Court Dental Surgery.

Over this time, we have endeavoured to provide the same standard of exceptional dental care to your children under the NHS that we provide to our private adult patients. The costs of this have been contributed to by the NHS and subsidised by the practice to enable us to continue to maintain our high standards.

We are continually looking for ways in which we can improve the services we offer to you. With decreasing levels of contributions from the NHS in real terms, it has become very apparent that some changes needed to be made to the way we practice in order to continue to be able to provide the very best dental care long term.

We have therefore decided that we will be seeing children independent of the NHS in the future, as we will be relinquishing our NHS contract from 1st April 2021.

Our main priority is continuing to strive to improve the long-term dental health of all our patients.

We want to ensure that we can continue to have enough time with your children and offer you more choice by providing a wider variety of treatments including all of your general dentistry and access to our team of specialist dentists for more advanced treatments, such as Orthodontics, when required.

The long-term dental health needs of your children is very important to us and this is why we can now provide this level of care within the practice in a timely manner without the inconvenience of external referrals.

We are therefore delighted to be able to announce that we have introduced our own low-cost private membership packages for children.

These are available for a monthly membership fee of £5.00 per month (just 16p per day) for 0 to 12-year-olds or £7.50 per month (just 24p per day) for 13 to 17-year-olds.

For details of the cover they provide please see https://www.guineacourtdental.co.uk/fees/dental-plans/.

Alternatively, you can pay for your children’s dental care as required – please see https://www.guineacourtdental.co.uk/fees/childrens-fee-guide/ for a guide to the fees.
