Treatment plans may vary as treatment continues. In these cases new estimates will be provided in writing to the patient and you will be informed by the dentist of the alterations. This may be whilst you are in the surgery and in the middle of treatment so it will be impossible to provide you with a new written estimate before the treatment is performed. In this case the dentist will tell you the additional cost, gain your consent to continue and make a note on your clinical treatment records. If you are unsure of anything at any time, please ask your dentist, nurse or reception for more information. It is important to us that you understand your treatment and the charges.
