Our payment plans explained in full
About our payment plans
Dental payment plans are a means of budgeting for your routine dental care. We recognise that individuals have different dental expectations and requirements. Consequently, we have developed an independent scheme that allows you to choose a level of cover appropriate for your circumstances.
In return for a regular monthly payment you will have access to all the routine services we normally provide within the practice, to optimise your dental health. Please see the individual plan details for the benefits that apply to each plan. Each of our plans include insurance against the cost of treatment for dental accidents, emergency treatment when away from home, and the provision of a cash benefit should you be admitted to hospital for dental related treatment.
Non-routine services, such as cosmetic dentistry, implants, orthodontic treatment and occlusion therapy are not covered by the monthly payment. Also, outside the plan are laboratory and prescription charges and any treatment requiring referral to consultants or specialists.
Prevention plan benefits
- 2 Examinations per year, including radiographs if required
- 2 or 4 visits for scaling, polishing and preventive advice
- Emergency cover away from home and abroad
- Emergency out-of-hours recall fee
- Accidental injury cover
- Hospital cash benefit
Comprehensive plan benefits
Our Comprehensive Plan offers all of the Prevention Plan benefits plus:
- Root fillings
- Crown and Bridgework*
The monthly cost of the Comprehensive Plan is determined by the current condition of your teeth and gums. Most of our patients pay £25 per month or less.
*Please note that treatments involving crowns, bridges and dentures will incur charges for laboratory fees.
How to join our payment plans
Joining either of our plans is very simple. We carry out an examination for our usual fee; if we find a problem, we may ask you to accept treatment for it, or invite your agreement to such treatment being excluded from the plan. Otherwise all you have to do is complete a direct debit mandate and your insurance cover will be effective from the start of the next month. There is a small registration fee to cover start-up costs for all plans.
If you ever find that you want to end the agreement you can do so simply by giving us one month’s notice. Naturally, if amounts due to us are not paid for two months in a row, we would terminate the arrangement after giving you notice. We will also advise you at least two months before our year-end of any change in your monthly payment for the following year.

What happens if you have a emergency?
However, if you are away from home, membership of the plan allows you to call the dental helpline, who will put you in touch with a dentist who can help. The telephone number is on your payment plan registration card. What is more, if you are overseas when you need help, the dental helpline will endeavour to find an English-speaking dentist to assist you.
How to claim under the insurance
We will also help you fill in a claim form should you need treatment for a dental injury. If the treatment is likely to cost more than £175 (and so require prior authorisation from DPAS) we will provide a costed treatment plan. An assessment by an independent dentist may be requested before this permanent treatment is authorised.
