It is difficult to be accurate on the cost of Private Treatment because the time a procedure takes and the materials we use will vary from one patient to another. Before starting on any treatment, we will explain and discuss the range of options open to you, and help you decide which is best suited to you, your lifestyle and your budget. Based on your decision, we will then provide you with a full quotation in advance, ensuring there are no surprises when you receive your final bill. If you have any questions about our fees, please feel free to ask - we are happy to help.
