Best Tulsa Dentist | Tulsa Dental Office

COVID-19 Update:

As our community faces a challenging time in this unprecedented situation, we will be modifying our schedule out of an abundance of caution. As of now, we will be only available for urgent situations and people in pain. Routine and preventative care cleanings will be rescheduled.

Due to recent recommendations from the ADA (American Dental Association) and ODA (Oklahoma Dental Association), for the safety of our patients, staff and families, we have decided to close the office effective 8:00am on Tuesday, March 17th.

What happens when you visit an NHS dentist

The dental treatment plan

If your dentist recommends a Band 2 or Band 3 dental treatment, you’ll be given a personal dental treatment plan (PDF, 19kb) in advance. This outlines all the treatments you are having on the NHS and how much they will cost. If you are not given a treatment plan, ask for one. Treatment plans are usually not given for Band 1 dental treatments, but you can ask for one if you like.

If your dentist says you need a particular type of treatment, you should not be asked to pay for it privately. If you’ve discussed alternative private options with the dentist, these should be listed on your treatment plan.

Separate details of any private treatment and associated costs – usually on the same form as your NHS treatment plan – should always be provided in writing before you commit to it. If this is not
