Spread The Cost of Regular Dental Care

PRACTICE PLAN

For patients who would like to spread the cost of their regular dental care we also offer our very own Practice Plan.

This is our own private membership scheme which enable us to provide you with the treatment and support necessary to control dental disease and maintain excellent oral health.

This plan also offers a number of additional benefits which include Worldwide Dental Trauma & Emergency Callout insurance.

More details of this and the different plan types are outlined below:

18-21 Year Old Plan £6.00 per month

Designed for our patients between 18-21 years of age, includes all the benefits as the Regular Care Plan.

Regular Care Plan £14 per month

We want to reward and look after our loyal patients. If you become a member of our practice you can make great savings on dental treatment and have the added comfort that you are insured in the event of a dental accident or an emergency.

The standard benefits to which you are entitled include:

  • Treatment planning for your future dental needs
  • Assessment of emergencies and dental pain with any temporary treatment required, carried out at the dental practice during normal surgery hours
  • Production of study models (when required)
  • Free antibiotics dispensed at the practice
  • Following recommended restorative work, any subsequent remedial work required within 12 months (on a like-for-like basis).

  • 20% discount on any fillings.
  • 20% discount on most other dental work (extractions, etc.)

Our members are also offered regular care appointments at no extra cost. After six consecutive monthly payments, you can benefit from the following:

  • A dental appointment to provide clinical examination, checking for signs of oral cancer and routine x-rays where clinically necessary
  • A hygiene appointment to include scale and polish, periodontal advice and preventive techniques to reduce decay and gum disease.

As long as you continue to be a member of our practice, you will be eligible for such care appointments. All that you need to do is make six consecutive monthly payments and, each time you do this, you will be entitled to attend the practice for your regular dental and hygiene appointment.

Plan Plus £16.70 per month

For those patients who would like more regular and extended access to dental care, we have our Plan Plus.

Worldwide Dental Trauma
and Emergency Callout Insurance

Emergency Callout – cover can be provided by any dentist worldwide who agrees to treat you. You simply pay the emergency callout charge to the dentist concerned and collect a receipted invoice. This will then be processed through the practice for reimbursement from the insurers and you will be refunded the callout fee, minus the excess, up to the policy limits. This cover is to provide immediate pain relief only; no additional or restorative treatment fees can be claimed. You should return to the practice in normal hours for any further treatment required.

Dental Trauma – cover is provided should you be unfortunate enough to suffer a dental trauma, for example, as a result of a road traffic accident or an accident at home or at work. The insurers will settle the claim up to the policy limits and you will need to pay any relevant excess.

Hospitalisation – benefit is provided should you have to stay in hospital as a result of dental trauma.

Permanent Facial Disfigurement – benefit is provided should you be scarred on the neck or face as a result of the accident.

Oral Cancer – a payment will be paid upon diagnosis of oral cancer.

Redundancy Protection – premiums paid for up to one year.
