NHS Dentist Services

NHS_dentist_services_mainFog lane dental practice provides standard NHS dentistry from our conveniently located dental practice in Didsbury. We are ideally placed on Fog lane in close proximity to Wilmslow Road, and not far from A34 (Kingsway) and adjacent to main public transport systems including Burnage train station.

Healthy teeth and gums and good oral hygiene are important for all and we firmly believe that everyone should have access to good quality, basic NHS dental services at a reasonable cost.

However, it is important to understand that there are differences between NHS services and those offered privately. For example, our private dental services offer a wider range of treatments and materials than our NHS services. Before you begin a course of treatment please make sure you know if you are being treated privately or as an NHS patient as this could well make a difference to the price you pay and the level of service you are entitled to.

  • clinical examination and report
  • basic fillings
  • scaling for tartar removal (hygienist not available on NHS)
  • some tooth extractions
  • some basic tooth restorations
  • some basic crown and bridge work
  • root canal treatment (if within the capability of our NHS general dentist)


Cosmetic treatments like cosmetic white fillings and crowns, tooth/cleaning polishing for non-health reasons, veneers, implants and teeth whitening are not available from our NHS dentist.

Please note, the NHS is a health service with limited resources, not a cosmetic service. We offer cosmetic treatments on a private basis only. Your dentist can discuss these with you if you wish.

Ultimately the choice between NHS and private dental treatment is yours but please ask us to explain the differences in detail so that you can make an informed choice and be comfortable with the decision you make.
