Questions & Answers
Q. What are the benefits of Denplan Care for me?
Seeing you as a patient registered under Denplan Care allows the emphasis to be put on Preventative dental care. This means that we can help stop dental problems before they occur or get worse.
Q. How is my fee calculated?
Your dentist at our practice completes a simple chart that takes into account your dental history, the current health of your teeth and gums and the Preventative care programme recommended. These factors will place you in a specified “category” for which we have already calculated the fee.
Q. How will my fee be paid?
You can choose to pay your fee monthly by direct debit, or annually by cheque or credit card, to Denplan, who act as a collecting agent for all Denplan member dentists
Q. Where does my payment go?
A small percentage of your payment is retained by Denplan to cover administration and your emergency dental insurance. The bulk of your payment is sent to your dentist.
Q. What exactly do I receive?
In return for your monthly payment you are entitled to regular examinations and consultations, ongoing advice an, a personal Preventative programme and all the routine dental treatment, normally received from your general dental practice, needed to help you maintain a healthy smile. You also receive access to a 24 hour emergency helpline and accident cover.
Q. Does my fee cover everything?
It will exclude laboratory fees for things like crowns, bridges, dentures and specialist treatment not normally covered by routine general dental practice such as orthodontic appliance therapy. A complete list of what is excluded is provided in condition 3 of your contract. You can ask our practice to see a copy of this list.
Q. Is there a registration fee?
Yes, there is a one-off registration charge of £15.00 on joining.
Q. Once I have signed a Denplan care contract, can I cancel it?
Yes, if you wish you can cancel your contract at any time by giving 21 days notice in writing to our practice and to Denplan. The contract will then end on the last day of the month. You can find out all the details of your membership on the copies of the contract you sign when you join.
Q. Is Denplan Care insurance?
No, Denplan Care is a maintenance contract that allows your dentist to provide you with a planned Preventative dental care programme. Through modern dental knowledge and techniques your dentist can help you achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. Most of your monthly payment is passed to your dental practice to support them in delivering this level of care, with Denplan only retaining a small amount to cover your insurance and administration. However, Denplan also arranges, on your behalf, supplementary insurance to cover the cost of treatment required as a result of an accident or temporary treatment in the event of an emergency.
