Fees for private/specialist medical or dental treatment can sometimes appear daunting and it is important that patients are aware of charges that may be incurred prior to possible treatment.
Patients attending for specialist treatment inevitably have problems which cannot be managed in a general dental environment; to resolve the challenges specialist techniques, materials and equipment are often required. Specialists train for a number of years following their initial dental training to learn how to manage difficult and often complex cases; only with this extra training, knowledge and skills can dentists register with the General Dental Council as a specialist.
Dental laboratories fabricate the crowns, bridges and other restorations used to restore the aesthetics and function of patients teeth. The techniques and accuracy required involves complex facilities to work with the specialist to provide the high quality restorations required.
Unfortunately as each patient’s case is unique we cannot provide accurate costs online. Following an initial consultation and any other treatment planning sessions required a full written report is provided for you detailing possible plans and the potential fees that may be incurred.
The nurses have worked in the practice for many years and can discuss current consultation fees with you.
Some patients prefer to pay for treatment on an ongoing basis or invoiced as phases of long, ongoing treatment are completed so that the payment is spread over a period of time. Occasionally for extensive treatment a deposit may be required prior to the start of treatment.
Many patients prefer to pay by bank transfer and details will be on the bottom of invoices sent or from contacting the practice directly by telephone or email.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘The Bramhope Dental Clinic Limited’ or if treatment has been carried out by Mamdouh then payable to Mamdouh Al-Chihabi; they can be sent or delivered to the practice.
All major debit card and credit cards (with the exception of American Express) are accepted and payment may be made at the practice in person or over the telephone.
Cash payments are acceptable but please do not send these through the post.
Alan accepts cheques for the initial consultation and will confirm how payment is made for treatment.
At The Bramhope Dental Clinic, the need for strict confidentiality of personal information about our patients is taken very seriously. We have a ‘Confidentiality policy’ which is a condition of employment for all staff members which ensures that any information revealed by our patient to the dentist, nurse or reception team will not be divulged without our patient’s written consent.
