Welcome to British Dentistry

This Dentistry Guide was produced to help you learn more about the various dental specialities, treatments and costs. These costs cover both the UK and abroad.

The aim is to engender a greater understanding about the importance of dental health and the procedures available to enhance this.

It includes all branches of dentistry, for example cosmetic dentistry: plus information about the most common dental conditions, types of dental practitioner and the differences between NHS and private treatment.

There is also a section about dental anxiety/phobia which affects 25% of the UK population. This percentage of people experience fear and dread when visiting the dentist which can result in a long term phobia and an increased risk of health problems.

This guide is not a substitute for professional dentistry. Seek advice from a reputable dental professional before embarking on a course of treatment.
