Smilecare Full Terms and Conditions

Appointments and Cancellation Notice

1.     We try to run on time and respectfully request that you arrive in good time for your appointment.  If you are late we may need to shorten your appointment time or rearrange so as not to run late for patients with appointments following yours.

  1. We require 24 hours notice for cancellation of appointments.  Where a late cancellation is made, such as on the morning of the appointment, a 50% fee of the treatment cost for that appointment may be charged.
  2. Where an appointment is not met and no notice is given a 100% fee of the treatment cost for that appointment may be charged.
  3. We try to call patients to confirm appointments over half an hour.  This is a service to help remind patients of appointments, it is still the patient’s responsibility to remember and attend appointments.

Treatment Guarantees

  1. The following information will help you to see how long your work is guaranteed for.  Your dentist should explain to you prior to any treatment the different guarantees:        
    1. Fillings will be guaranteed by the dentist for 3 months after treatment.
    2. Crowns and Bridge work will be guaranteed by the dentist for re-cement, re-fit and caries developing for up to 12 months.  For breakages requiring the laboratory to remake the work, the laboratory guarantee their work for up to 12 months.  Zirconia crowns and bridge work will be guaranteed by the laboratory for 5 years, Please note that where the laboratory guarantee their work, if it is 6 months after the initial fit the dentist will need to charge for their time to refit the free laboratory work.
    3. Root Canal Treatment and Extensive Periodontal Care Treatment do not carry guarantees.  It must be explained by the dentist that if the treatment fails, the work may need to be re-done at an additional cost.  Should you require either of these treatments your dentist will discuss with you the likelihood of success in your case, and provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.  
    4. Extractions: following a tooth extraction, there are certain patients who will be at risk of a dry socket, which is where healing is impaired due to key factors such as smoking.  Where a dry socket needs treating after extraction this will be charged at the current emergency rate set out in the practice fees.

Fees and Payments

  1. Dental Fees: We aim to provide every patient with a detailed breakdown of their treatment costs as an estimate before booking an appointment as it is part of making an informed decision about any treatment.  You will be asked at the time of booking an appointment whether you have been given the necessary information about the cost of the treatment.
  2. For most large treatments we require a 50% deposit before booking any appointments.
  3. For patients on our Dental Health Plan, if they wish to cancel the plan, we will provide a summary of how much  they contributed in monthly payments and how many examinations and hygienist appointments they have had, if they have had more dental care than contributions we ask that they keep the direct debit going until this is settled.  If they are in credit then we keep this on their account indefinitely until they or their family member wants to use the fees for any dental care.
  4. For patients paying by direct debit, if on two or more occasions the debit fails to be credited to Smilecare, then a fee of £10.00 may be charged for each subsequent failed direct debit transaction.
  5. On the rare occasion when an account is not settled with us, we will make every attempt to write and contact the patient with the outstanding account in writing, email and by telephone.  If this is unsuccessful we will add a 5% administration fee to the outstanding balance and require payment within 5 working days.  If no payment is received we will send the outstanding account to a debt collection agency, and the collection fee the debt company charge which is a minimum of 25% plus any county court judgement fees will also be charged to the patient’s outstanding account.
