About Our Payment Plan
Most people believe that tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss are an inevitable part of growing older; but if you know how to take care of your teeth you should be able to look forward to a healthy mouth, throughout your life.
We recommend that our patients follow a programme of preventive care, using the skill of our practice team and support of the Denplan Care payment plan.
For a fixed monthly sum, Denplan Care helps you budget for regular, affordable, preventive dental care, without the fear of costly and un-expected bills, including any treatment normally carried out by our practice.
Firstly, you have to choose which level of cover is right for you – Denplan Care or Denplan Essentials .
A dentist at our practice will then carry out a dental assessment. Guided by this initial assessment, we will then establish your monthly payment. This payment will be collected monthly by direct debit by Denplan and then paid to us.
There is a one-off registration charge which is collected with your first monthly payment. You then enter into a straightforward continuing care contract with our practice.
