Our Denplan Payment Plans are designed to help patients to budget for the cost of dental care with a monthly payment and so provides peace of mind. The plan also provides valuable insurance should you need additional treatment in an emergency, following an accident or for serious dental conditions such as oral cancer. The insurance is supplementary and you will need to opt-in to have it.
Most people believe that tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss are an inevitable part of growing older; but if you know how to take care of your teeth you should be able to look forward to a healthy mouth, throughout your life.
We recommend that our patients follow a programme of preventive care, using the skill of our practice team and support of a Denplan payment plan.
For a fixed monthly sum, Denplan helps you budget for regular, affordable, preventive dental care, without the fear of costly and un-expected bills, including any treatment normally carried out by our practice.
Firstly, you must choose which level of cover is right for you – Denplan Care which will offer you comprehensive dental cover or Denplan Essentials which will cover your exams, hygiene appointments as well as an x-ray each year if needed and 10% off any qualifying treatment you have.
A dentist at our practice will then carry out a dental assessment. Guided by this initial assessment, we will then establish your monthly payment. This payment will be collected monthly by direct debit by Denplan and then paid to us.
There is a one-off registration charge which is collected with your first monthly payment. You then enter into a straightforward continuing care contract with our practice.
It is the policy of the practice to give patients full information about the cost of their dental care before any treatment is undertaken. A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for all dental treatment other than routine preventative examination and hygiene care.
Most of our patients are treated under the private care scheme, which means you pay for treatment as you receive it.
We use high quality dental laboratories and we are able to take advantage of the best modern dental materials. You will be given an estimate of the cost of laboratory work for crowns, dentures etc, where a precise cost cannot be determined in advance and will receive timely advice of any additional costs of laboratory work where appropriate.
We are not currently accepting any new NHS patients. However, if you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, there will be three standard charges.
The amount you pay will depend on the treatment you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
