Are dentists paid in a similar fashion to those in England i.e. 3 bands, x amount for doing 1 filling or doing 10 filling ( hence why many dentists are quitting NHS !).

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated !

Thank you

No.

The Scottish system is similarly complicated and some might say unrewarding!

Basic pay is calculated based on how many patients you have registered to you. Continuing care (adults) and capitation (kids). You get a greater fee at each extreme of age.

On top of that, in adults only, you work on a (very modest) fee per item basis. If you do a scale and polish you claim for it, if you do an exam you claim for it etc. There are lots and lots of rules and regulations as documented in the statement of dental renumeration.

If you need any more info, give me a shout
