The price comparison site BestCareCompare.com has added dentist prices making it the most comprehensive healthcare cost comparison site in the UK. BestCareCompare.com already provides price comparison information for "self pay" tests and procedures, such as MRI scans and hip replacement, and now users can compare the cost of dental check ups, fillings, braces, dentures and other dental procedures.
With some patients having to wait a number of weeks for an NHS dental appointment, more and more people are choosing to make a one off payment for private dental treatment. With the cost of a filling ranging from £40 to £260, it is worth shopping around. For the first time in the UK, patients can now compare prices in one single location.
However, it is not just about price, and BestCareCompare.com provides a wealth of information on the quality of services provided, including star ratings and patient reviews. Patients can search and filter based on price, location and star rating and can also read reviews that have been posted by other patients.
Dental prices are the latest addition to an ever growing site that now includes price information on dentists, private GPs and private hospitals. It also includes comparative quality information for care homes, pharmacists and opticians.
"The site is designed to work like other comparison sites such as Tripadvisor or Comparethemarket.com to make it as accessible as possible to the widest range of people who are searching for healthcare," said Mark Tynan, lead developer of BestCareCompare.com.
Stuart Scullion, chair of Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries said "In principle I support anything which brings innovation to the healthcare sector. The service puts choice into the hands of the patient and appears as an extension of pay-as-you-go options."
