Dental care plan

We are delighted to offer the Dental Care Plan – our own membership scheme, which enables us to provide you with the treatment and support necessary to control dental disease and restore your mouth to full fitness. As soon as you are dentally fit you are welcome to join our affordable dental care plan which means you will be able to enjoy:

  • Fewer fillings
  • Less dental decay
  • Less likelihood of toothache
  • More attractive teeth
  • Reduced costs
  • The skills to help you keep your own teeth for life

Every parent who joins our dental care plan can bring up to three of their children for a free dental health check, oral hygiene instruction and dietary advice.

Our aim is to provide your child with the best dental care available to secure their dental wellbeing. We ask patients to bring their children with them from birth so that we can see them regularly to help them grow up free from dental disease.

We can see up to three children free of charge, when a parent is on the Membership Plan, for dental health checks, dietary advice, tooth brushing instruction and fluoride application. There is a minimal charge for fillings and extractions.

Our dental plan includes regular dental appointments (two per year), at which we perform a 15 point Dental Health check.

During the two visits annually this covers all 15 aspects of Dental Health to ensure your mouth is regularly maintained, covering:

  • Teeth
  • Gums
  • Bite
  • Jaw joint
  • Oral cancer

Our dental plan includes regular hygiene appointments (two per year) to provide:

  • Plaque Removal
  • Periodontal advice
  • Preventative techniques to reduce decay and gum disease.
  • Assessment of emergencies and dental pain carried out at the practice during normal surgery hours.
  • Conscious Sedation appointments available.
  • All treatment planning for your future dental needs.
  • All restorative work guaranteed for twelve months.
  • 20% reduction off any laboratory-based treatments required, i.e. crowns, bridges and dentures.
  • 20% reduction off any fillings.
  • 20% reduction off other dental work (extractions, etc.).
  • 20% reduction off any additional hygiene work.
  • Worldwide Trauma Insurance to protect against the cost of large unforeseen accidental damage.
  • Emergency Callout Insurance, should you need a dentist in an emergency, anywhere in the world.
  • Redundancy Protection for up to 12 months.

It’s often at the most unconvenient times and places that problems or accidents can arise. Our Dental Care Plan provides cover at the right time.

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 –
Plan premiums paid for up to one year.

A leaflet giving details of the insurance cover, limits, excesses and exclusions is available at the practice.
