Frequently Asked Questions
Why are we offering a Dental Plan?
Joining a DPAS Dental Plan gives you the opportunity to spread the cost of your preventive dental care. Plus benefit from worldwide Supplementary Dental Injury and Emergency Insurance. For us, we can plan your regular care more effectively than on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.
What are the advantages of joining a Dental Plan?
It is easier to spread the cost of your dental care with monthly payments. In addition, it also gives you peace of mind of being covered with access to a 24 hour dental emergency helpline 365 days per year and eligibility to request assistance from the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme
Plus we offer discounted fees for those treatments not covered on the plan e.g. Cosmetic Fillings to replace metal ones. Our plan is managed and administered by specialist dental plan administrator, DPAS Limited.
How do you join Our Dental Plans?
If you are an existing Private patient on want to join a Plan, this is very simple. All you have to do is complete a registration form from us, a Direct Debit & authorisation form for DPAS. In addition to your first monthly payment, an initial one off registration fee of £10 per person is paid by you to DPAS, and is included in your first Direct Debit payment. If you decide to leave the plan for any reason, then you can – no quibbles, no problem.
For New Patients to our Practice, we will need to do a New Patient Exam & Oral Health Assessment, so as to determine your oral health risk. This is based on things like number of fillings, number of crowns, condition of gums & general oral health etc. Then from this we can advise which Plan suits. The Essentials & Annual Plan fees are fixed, as quoted above.*
