At SDC Group, we believe in being completely transparent about the treatments we offer and their costs. Whether you are an NHS patient or are being seen on a private basis we will always explain your treatment options and the costs involved, prior to treatment commencing. Where there are a range of treatment options available to you, your SDC team will explain the benefits of each, allowing you to have all the information you need before choosing the clinic which best suits your needs.
