Dentists are being promised cuts in their inspection fees. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has unveiled plans to move to ‘full chargeable cost recovery’ from next April to reduce its reliance on Government funds.

As a result, fees will be frozen in 2016-17 and will fall in the following financial year under a consultation launched on 2 November

The proposed fees for single location dentists – which will be frozen until 2019-20 are:

  • One chair – £600 (2015-16), £600 (2016-17), then £510 (2017-18) 
  •  Two chairs – £750 falling to £638
  •  Three chairs – £850 falling to £723 
  •  Four chairs – £950 falling to £808
  •  Five and six chairs – £1,100 falling to £935
