We have registered with a new NHS dentist since moving house & they won't give us a scale & polish under the same Band 1 charge of £17 with an examination. We're told we need to book an appointment with their hygenist & also pay a £30 depoist to make an appointment! At my previous dentist I was always given a scale & polish with the 6 month examination & all under the Band 1 charge. Are our new dentists allowed to do this?
