Plan Summaries

Denplan Care

A complete dental care membership that allows you to spread the cost of routine care with predictable monthly payments tailored to your needs.

The monthly sum is calculated through an assessment of your oral health on your first visit. It covers routine care but can exclude elements of treatment you or your dentist are unwilling to do.  To keep monthly fees as low as possible, laboratory fees and specialist dental treatments are not included.

Before you join denplan care, your mouth needs to be healthy all-round. This is assessed at your initial visit, which consists of the following; screening for tooth decay and wear , gum disease, oral cancer and jaw joint problems. Radiographs of back teeth and any tooth of apparent poor prognosis will be offered and preventative advice will be given. A simple scale and polish may be offered provided that nothing untowards has been noted and a summary of immediate work will be explained and a treatment plan and quotation offered. There is a flat fee of £30 for this assessment.


  • Your dentist then lets you know the monthly fee for your ongoing dental care and treatment. This is based on an assessment performed during your dental check-up. Prices currently range between £14.90 and £36.16 per month.
  • Denplan Care is a contract between you and your dentist that allows ongoing preventive general dental care as well as many restorative treatments to be provided by your dentist in a time frame organised and agreed by  you. This does not include specialist care such as implants , advanced endodontics and advanced surgical extractions and periodontal surgery.
