The Importance of Your Oral Health

Dental decay is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. It can have a huge effect on general overall health and yet it is entirely preventable, which is why it is so important that patients prioritise their oral health" Roger Matthews, Chief Dental Officer, Denplan.

Preventive dentistry is the foundation on which Denplan was built. A dental payment plan enables you and your dentist to focus on regular care to help minimise the risk factors before they cause pain and may need costly treatment.

We recommend that our patients follow a programme of preventive care using the skill of our practice team and the support of a dental payment plan.

How It Works

Your dentist will talk to you about the dental plans so that you can choose which one is right for you - Denplan Care or Denplan Essentials.
A dentist at our practice will then carry out a dental assessment. The amount you pay will be decided by your dentist and is based on your oral health and how much dental treatment you will need. The payment will be collected monthly by Denplan.

Please note that there is a one-off registration charge which is equal to one month’s fee. The care contract is with your dentist and the Supplementary Insurance is with Denplan.
