Following a BBC News analysis that discovered half of dental practices on the NHS Choices website were not accepting new patients in England, leading health charity the Oral Health Foundation wants to see more investment and funding put into NHS dentistry.

The charity supports calls declaring the figures as an "emerging crisis" in dental care in England and want to see the government act urgently to prevent the problem increasing further. 

At Paddock Dental, we understand it can be difficult to pay for your treatments. This is why we offer a range of Denplan schemes that help you budget for your routine dental care and treatment by affordable monthly payments. There are several plans available to you.

Denplan Care Denplan covers restorative care including fillings, root canal treatment, crowns and bridges (lab fees excluded), it also covers Hygienist appointments at our practice.
