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 your dentist can help stop dental
problems before they occur or get worse.
do I know if my treatment is of a high standard?
Denplan Care member dentists not only conform
to the professionalism demanded by their own ethical standard,
they also agree to be bound by the Denplan Rules of Membership,
the Denplan Practice Quality Programme and Code of Practice
established by Denplan.
Denplan Care insurance?
No, Denplan Care is a maintenance contract
that allows your dentist to provide ongoing preventative care.
Through modern dental knowledge and techniques your dentist
can help you achieve and maintain healthier teeth and gums
for a lifetime. However, Denplan also arranges, on your behalf,
supplementary insurance to cover the cost of treatment required
as a result of an accident or in the event of an emergency.
there a registration fee?
Yes, there is a once only fee usually debited
during the first month of your contract to cover Denplan's
initial costs of administration. This is an additional one-off
payment equal to your monthly fee.
is my fee calculated?
Your dentist 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 your dentist has already calculated the fee.
there any discounts available?
Denplan Care can benefit the whole family.
Where more than one member of a family (or group) is registered
and payments are made under a single direct debit, the following
- 2 family members - 5%
- 3 family members - 10%
- 4 or more family members - 15%
Q How will my fee be paid?
Although your contract is between you and
your dentist, you can choose to pay your fee monthly by direct
debit, or annually by cheque or credit card to Denplan, who
acts as a collecting agent for all Denplan member dentists.
Q Will my treatment be different?
The aim of preventative dentistry is to help
you improve and maintain your long-term oral health through
working with your dentist. This approach means that where
possible, invasive treatment is kept to a minimum.
Q When will my entitlement
to cover start?
Your preview programme can start immediately
the contract is signed, and the supplementary insurance cover
will start as soon as the registration form is received by
Denplan. If you prefer, you can delay until the first day
of a chosen month, entered on your registration form, provided
Denplan has received your form by this date.
Q Once I've 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 your dentist
and to Denplan. The contract will then end on the last day
of the month. You can find all the details of your membership
on the copies of the contract you signed.
Q Who am I in contract with?
You are in contract with your dentist.
Denplan simply act as collecting agents for all Denplan Care
