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 OUR Dental Plan?

It is easier to spread the cost of your preventive dental care with monthly payments. In addition, it also gives you peace of mind of being covered by a Supplementary Dental Injury & Emergency Insurance & access to a 24-hour helpline. Plus we offer discounted fees for those treatments not covered on the plan e.g. Cosmetic Fillings to replace metal ones or say Veneers. 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 do so by simply giving us one month’s notice in writing.

For New Patients to our Practice, we need to do a New Patient Exam & free Oral Health Assessment so 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, and what your monthly fee is. The Essentials & Annual Plan fees are fixed, as quoted above.* The Care Plan, which is much more comprehensive, ranges from £12.90 per month to £32.00 per month. Therefore you have the freedom to choose the right care for you and your family.
