Denplan Dental Payment Plan
Denplan is the UK’s leading dental payment plan specialist. They have consistently encouraged a preventative approach to dental care and, with unique and wide-ranging services, have been supporting dentists and patients for over 25 years.
Keeping dentally fit is really important as dental problems can contribute to lifelong oral and general health issues. Having good teeth makes you want to smile!
Denplan Essentials supports a preventative approach to your oral health care. Regular examinations, dental care and oral health advice can help reduce the need for costly and complex dental treatment. Denplan Essentials covers your routine preventative care and offers a 10% discount against the cost of restorative treatments. It is available from £8.51 per month.
Denplan Care helps you pay for all your regular routine examinations, hygiene visits and and any restorative dental treatment. If you need a crown, bridge or denture you will only have to pay the laboratory fees which can save you a significant amount of money. It is available from £14.15 per month.
Please speak to your dentist about these plans. Your dentist will discuss with you the programme of preventative treatment you require to maintain and improve your oral health, the plan that is most suitable for you and the monthly cost.
