Dentistry treatment in the UK is principally provided through Dental Practices. These are most often partnerships or companies employing one or many qualified Dentists. The vast majority of Practices do both NHS and Privately funded work, commonly with the NHS paying a proportion of the work and patients paying the balance. A small number of Practices are owned and run by the NHS and similarly, a minority of Practices only conduct privately funded treatments.
