What is Denplan Care?
With Denplan Care your fixed monthly payments help you to
budget for regular, affordable preventative dental care, without
the fear of costly and unexpected bills. For an affordable
monthly payment, Denplan Care provides regular, preventative
dental care and is designed to offer long- term oral health
care for as long as you remain a member.
After an initial assessment, patients are placed into one
of five fee categories set by the dentist. Denplan collects
the monthly payment by direct debit from the patient, and
after allowing for an administration fee, pays the dentist.
The monthly payment entitles the Denplan patient to all regular
treatment and advice needed to maintain oral health. This
includes x-rays and fillings where necessary.
Patients only pay extra for laboratory fees and prescriptions.
