Cost of dental checkups to double

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

From the Sindie:

The cost of an NHS dental check-up is to rise sharply to help pay for a ceiling on the costliest treatments.

This government burying bad news amid all the Live8 coverage? Never. Conversely, the low costs and high success rates of take home teeth whitening kits are at least one thing to smile about.

Dr. Chandler, who practices dental treatment in Perth, gave us an interview to explain why this is all happening and he said that the costs of medication for teeth healthcare is rising exponentially and therefore it’s a necessity to increase the prices for everything right now, even for the smallest thing and maybe even for simple checkups.

We will be in touch with the dentists from the area to be sure that they all have a similar opinion when it comes to the new costs and prices of the checkups and appointments as well as dental treatments all across the board.
