At the first appointment an examination is made and x-rays may be taken for which a charge is made. An initial estimate is formulated which may change after further investigations and the treatment plan has been discussed.
Treatment required is charged at the current private rate. Alternatively, if you are still making
Denplan payments to another practice, you may wish to have treatment carried out there.
If you are a Denplan patient moving from another practice and have a ‘leavers certificate’, the initial examination will cost £20. As long as you are dentally fit and have given Denplan the required one month’s notice to end your previous contract, you may immediately join our Denplan scheme.
To enter the scheme your mouth should be in a stable condition.
A simple assessment is made by the dentist to determine your fee band.
The band in which you are placed reflects the average expected treatment needed and is not necessarily the same as at your previous practice. Sometimes we may take on patients whose mouths are unstable but the banding level may be increased to reflect the extra time needed, or certain treatment may be excluded.
Not all mouths are suitable for capitation.
An insurance element is included in your membership. This provides you with cover for out of hours call out fees, emergency treatment when away from home and treatment for dental injuries resulting from trauma, including laboratory fees.
Denplan monthly fees
- BAND A. £17.19
- BAND B. £25.29
- BAND C. £31.62
- BAND D. £40.60
- BAND E. £51.33
Denplan provides a way for you to care for your dental needs with fixed monthly costs.
Unfortunately, problems may arise from time to time, but financial implications need not be an additional worry. Your decision on treatment options may be dictated by what is right for you and not by cost issues.
So for peace of mind, once you have your mouth in a condition you want to keep, Denplan may be the right choice for you.
