What Does a Trip to the Dentist Cost in Jersey?

01 December 2017 What Does a Trip to the Dentist Cost in Jersey? Image

Visiting a dentist in Jersey for regular check-ups and hygiene appointments is far more cost-effective than waiting until dental emergencies develop. It makes far more sense to budget for preventative dental care as part of your regular health care regime. We suggest people visit us regularly for a proper dental examination and a hygiene appointment. Taking this preventative approach allows our dentists to closely monitor any changes to your dental health and to prescribe the most suitable treatment, if required. This does mean that if you do need any treatment it may well be less invasive and less expensive, helping to preserve more of your natural tooth.

For example, imagine if you have a small cavity in the tooth that just requires a simple filling. Using advanced restorative techniques, our dentists can simply treat the cavity by placing a durable and long-lasting filling. Now imagine what would happen if this cavity wasn’t detected in time. Eventually the cavity would get bigger and could affect the nerve of the tooth leading to infection and toothache, by which stage you would quite possibly need emergency dental care and root canal treatment. Afterwards the tooth would need to be restored, probably with a crown, which would invariably cost more. When a tooth is particularly badly infected then we may have no choice but to remove it. We would much rather provide preventive dental care and routine maintenance that helps preserve your dental health and your smile while keeping the dentist cost in Jersey down.

 

Taking a Closer Look at the Costs of Routine Dental Care

The cost of routine dental care is quite affordable, especially when you consider it may be all that is needed every six months. For example, existing patients only need pay £65 for their routine examinations while a hygiene appointment for an adult will cost between £70 and £140, depending on the length of the appointment and the level of care provided. In contrast, the cost of an emergency appointment starts at £85.50 and the out of hours callout fee is £150. If you aren’t yet a patient here at the Cosmetic Dental Group, your first adult examination costs just £95 and includes x-rays. Prices become even more affordable if you join one of our Dental Health Plans.

 

Enjoy Affordable Dental Care with Our Dental Health Plan

We want to ensure our patients can enjoy access to regular preventative dental care and additional treatments when needed. To do this, we offer a range of Dental Health Plans and once our dentist in Jersey has assessed your current dental health, they can recommend the most suitable and cost-effective plan for your needs. If you generally have good dental health, you may only need to see our dentist once a year and to visit the hygienist twice yearly. If we feel it is necessary to monitor your dental health more closely, then we may suggest you choose a plan that includes two examinations and either two or four hygiene appointments. You do not need to see a dentist every time you see a hygienist as you are free to book a stand-alone appointment with any of our hygienists whenever you wish. For just a small monthly fee, you gain peace of mind knowing that your routine dentist cost in Jersey is covered.

 

What Else Does the Plan Include?

Our plans offer a number of additional benefits that include:

  • Oral cancer screenings
  • A comprehensive assessment of your gum health
  • Customised instructions on oral hygiene and dietary advice
  • 10% discount on all private treatment fees and this includes cosmetic dentistry
  • Worldwide dental accident and emergency cover
  • Two clinically necessary dental x-rays each year

If you have children under five then they go free,. Once your child reaches age 5 they receive a reduced fee for the Dental Health Plan that includes fissure sealants and which is applicable until age 17.

 

What Happens If I Need More Extensive Treatment?

If you need more extensive treatment then we have you covered. Our practice offers a range of payment plans designed to make it easy for you to spread the cost of dental care. We offer interest-free finance over 12 months or if you prefer then you can choose an interest option spread over a longer term. These payment plans can be especially useful if you need unexpected emergency treatment and our Patient Care Coordinators will be happy to explain all the details and all possible choices. We want to make sure our patients can always receive the treatment they need or of course you can always use our interest-free payment schemes to get smile of your dreams.

 

Protecting Your Health with Regular Dental Care

With regular dental care, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your smile is professionally maintained, helping you to benefit from optimal dental health. In the longer term, your Dental Health Plan represents excellent value and it is a worthwhile investment in your general health. Clinical research has discovered links between poor dental health and poor general health and these are connections no-one can afford to ignore.

  • 'All the staff at The Cosmetic Dental Group are very friendly and professional. The dental work I needed has been completed by Dr Willetts, and I am very pleased with the result. The cost was a lot less than I had originally been quoted, and no need for a visiting Consultant as Dr Willetts had the necessary expertise.'

  • 'All of the staff are really kind and friendly and in particular, I must thank Jonathan Wood for all the time and hard work he has put in to my teeth. I am very glad that I came here and would definitely recommend it to others.'

  • 'I feel like my teeth are 100% better than they were before. I am very pleased. It’s like a weight off my mind. I didn’t know how conscious I was and so now having had the treatment, it has given me that little bit more confidence to smile freely without thinking of my teeth.'

  • 'CDG comes highly recommended, the entire team are professional, friendly and know their stuff. Well worth a visit.'

  • 'I am extremely pleased with the speed and quality of the work I have had from Jonathan Wood- a complete transformation with no pain at all.'

  • 'The Dental Health Plan at the practice has also been really good for me as it’s a great way of having your regular appointments paid for so you don’t have to think about it.

  • 'I’d just like to say how much I enjoy knowing I’m coming to the practice because when I come, I’m received right royally really.

  • 'Having undergone quite major dentistry over the past year, I can highly recommend The Cosmetic Dental Group.'

  • 'It’s not a case of not affording to go, you just can't afford not to go. They make going to the dentist pleasurable.'

  • Meeting and being treated by Jonathan Wood changed my life. Jonathan was recommended to me by a friend who told me that she was sure he could help me. Over the years I had investigated having my bite corrected and was told the same thing again and again. My bite was difficult to fix. One dentist told me that teeth would need to be removed and even then, he could not guarantee that the treatment would be successful stating that it was highly probable the teeth and jaw would shift back to their original starting point. There was no jaw surgery or extraction of teeth. Eighteen months later the braces came off and I felt like a new person both physically and emotionally. I'm not sure you can put a price on what I have gained. I will be eternally grateful to Jonathan, his wonderful assistants, and the friendly, warm team at the Cosmetic Dental Group.

  • 'I've had such a great experience. Everything was explained to me clearly and in a way I would understand. I feel as though I have had much more for my money and time compared to other dentists I have been to.'

  • 'If I were to sum up the practice I would say patient-focused, outstanding in its’ field and one which just gets it right.'

  • I could not recommend the Cosmetic Dental Group enough! They have been fantastic 👌 I was very nervous at first due to a previous experience, however, Caroline and the team have been fantastic and made this process a lot easier than I ever thought it would be. I don’t think I showed just how happy I was with my teeth when I left each time as in honesty I had never known what good looks like. However the amount others have noticed and said how good they look is a complement to the great job they have done and now I do know what good looks like! It has helped others I know to sign up to sort their teeth and I will continue my treatment with the plan going forward having seen the benefits and taken in the advice I have been given.
