Charges for replacement – dental services

9.—(1) Where a dental practitioner providing general dental services or providing services under a pilot scheme replaces a dental appliance supplied as part of those services and it is determined in accordance with Schedule 3 that the replacement is necessitated by –

(a)an act or omission on the part of the person supplied; or

(b)if the act or omission occurred when the person supplied was under 16 years of age, an act or omission of the person supplied or of the person having charge of the person supplied when the act or omission occurred,

the dental practitioner may make and recover a charge from the relevant person.

(2) The amount of the charge to be made and recovered under paragraph (1) is, subject to paragraph (3), the Statement remuneration for the supply of the dental appliance.

(3) If the Health Board considers–

(a)that payment of the full amount of the charge under paragraph (1) would involve undue hardship to the relevant person; or

(b)that the replacement, though necessitated by the relevant person’s act or omission, was not wholly necessitated by lack of reasonable care on the part of the relevant person,

it may determine that the charge shall not be payable, or that its amount shall be reduced.

(4) In this regulation, “relevant person” means–

(a)where paragraph (1)(b) applies, the person having charge of the person supplied when the act or omission occurred;

(b)in any other case, the person supplied.
