Government announces 'appalling' price hike of NHS dental treatment The Government has revealed plans to raise the cost of NHS dental treatments by five per cent.
It means that a standard trip to the dentist for a routine examination and possible cleaning will cost £22.70 from April.
Patients will have to fork out £62.10 for fillings, while crowns and other band three treatments will cost £269.30.
However, critics today slammed the 'appalling' price hike and argued it will only discourage more people from seeing a dentist. The Daily Mail
