Home / Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you cover?

We have two bases. One is in Totnes and this covers South Devon. We visit patients from Plymouth to the Devon/Dorset border, up into Dartmoor and towards Tiverton.

Our second base is in Fareham and covers West Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey. Unfortunately we do not currently visit the Isle of Wight.

If you live close to the boundary of where we cover, please call us on 0808 169 4546 to make a special request.

What treatments can you offer?

We are able to offer a comprehensive range of dental treatments, just as you would find in a dental surgery. This includes fillings, replacement dentures, extractions, scale and polish, and teeth whitening. A list of our treatments can be found by visiting www.athomedental.co.uk/treatments-we-offer/

If you want to confirm whether we offer a specific treatment, please call us on 0808 169 4546 or email us on reception@homedental.org

How much will it cost?

A new patient assessment is £68 plus our £40 service fee. The service fee is for bringing our specialist mobile dental equipment to you, in much the same way many services have a call out fee. At your first appointment, the dentist will create a treatment plan for you with accurate costs for any recommended further treatment.

A full list of our fees can be found at www.athomedental.co.uk/fees

Do you offer dentistry under the NHS?

We are able to provide dentistry under the NHS if you are housebound and live in Torbay, Devon. More information about our NHS service can be found at www.homedentists.co.uk.

In West Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey and the rest of South Devon, we can visit you on a private basis.

Do I have to be housebound to use this service?

No. Some of our patients are housebound but others simply prefer to have a dentist come to them as it is more convenient. Some of our patients also like being seen by us because they are very nervous about going to a dental surgery and so find it easier to be seen in the comfort of their own home.

How do I book an appointment?

To book an appointment, please call us on 0808 169 4546.
