We charge £295 for the first hour and £100 for every subsequent 30 mins or part thereof.
Please quote all fees to the patient.
The practice in invoiced directly following treatment and payment can be made online or via BACS.
Make sure the patient has paid before treatment starts as it’s not a great idea to take payment when they are in recovery.
Each session is a minimum of one hour. It takes 10-15 minutes to induce the sedation. The patient will need to be in the chair for an hour at least, or transferred to a private recovery area after treatment is finished.
We treat all adult patients over 18 years old that are ASA 1 or 2 (fit and well or with a well controlled chronic illness). Sometimes if patients are borderline ASA 3, just drop us an email if there any questions.
Have a look at our Dentist video in the resources section of this website first to find out what to discuss with patients.
Ensure that you have done the patient assessment at https://uksedation.com/resources/
We will organise a chat beforehand with the patient and organise written and verbal consent.
Your sedationist will do a preoperative assessment on the day of the appointment.
The easiest thing to do is to show them the preop video in the resources section.
Sedation in not the same as a general anaesthetic, they won’t be asleep, just relaxed.
Bring someone responsible with you who can take you home (don’t get a taxi!)
Don’t fast beforehand unless advised
Don’t do anything responsible the rest of the day like driving, spending money or looking after children on your own.
We’ve done cases up to 9 hours before so if you need something special, just email us to discuss. Alternatively find a day when both am and pm session are available and book both!
When you book a slot, you will get a confirmation email which has links to change or cancel the appointment.
if not, then just the chatbot on the homepage!
In rare circumstances, we can’t find a vein or the patient is unsuitable for treatment. Sometimes we can use Intranasal or Oral sedation but need to have venous access for that. If we really can’t sedate then the patient is refunded the full sedation cost there and then.
