Document What is continuation treatment?

Continuation applies when a patient returns for a further course of NHS treatment within two calendar months (less a day) of the date of completion of the original banded Course of Treatment (CoT), and where the continuation treatment is at the same band or lower and provided at the same dental practice. Continuation wouldn't apply if the previous CoT was incomplete or if either CoT was an urgent treatment.

Example: if the CoT completion date is the 10 May, the two months would end on 9 July. If the same patient requires further treatment which falls within the same charging band or lower and the further treatment is provided under the same provider, no charge may be made in respect of that further treatment.
 
Further guidance regarding continuation treatment can be found in the National Health Service (Dental Charges) Regulations 2005.
