Alongside our NHS services, we also offer a private membership payment plan. This is designed to spread the cost of your dental examinations and hygiene appointments across the year in monthly payments.
We aim to support you to look after your mouth, to achieve and maintain excellent oral health.
Our dental membership plan encourages regular attendance, enabling us to spot problems before they trigger symptoms and will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for life.
We have designed this plan to support people who look after their teeth and gums by keeping the standard monthly charge low. For those needing more treatment the plan includes a discount on our treatment charges.
We believe your dental needs are best met by seeing the same dentist regularly for examinations and routine dental care. As we get to know you better, we can tailor our approach to suit your preferences.
We also have an experienced team of dental professionals with a range of skills who will work alongside your dentist to deliver excellent care to you.
What will the monthly fees be for 2022?
£23 per month
What is included is the Standard plan?
2 x dental health examinations per year. Any necessary digital x-rays are also included.
2 hygiene appointments with the option to upgrade to cosmetic scale for additional £20 per visit,
or air flow for £30 per visit
One emergency and urgent treatment (to relieve pain or swelling, temporary repairs
of broken teeth or recementing crowns and bridges and denture repairs).
50% off further emergency visits
10% off necessary treatments
How does Private Plan work?
Your Private Plan payment plan spreads the cost of your preventative, hygiene and urgent dental care for the year over 12 months. It also provides a discount on necessary treatment costs, but not cosmetic treatments.
How do I join?
You will need to attend for an examination and be assessed to see if you are suitable for the plan.
This will be charged at our usual private fee of £50.
Your dentist will need to check you are suitable for the plan and will advise you further about this.
Patients who have had extensive cosmetic treatment completed in the UK or abroad, or have complex restorative work, eg. multiple crowns and bridges or implants, might not be suitable for our plan. This is because it has been priced for the majority of people with a low to medium level of dental needs. If you are also at high risk or gum disease or dental decay and not able to make changes to follow our prevention advice you also might not be able to join our plan. Your inclusion in Practice Plan is at the dentist's discretion.
What happens if I have my private exam to join the plan and treatment is needed?
If any treatment is identified during your examination, this will need to be completed (paid at normal private rates) and then you can join the plan if assessed as suitable by the dentist.
What do I do in a dental emergency?
For dental emergencies including pain, swelling and trauma, you should call during normal opening hours to seek help. We recommend calling from 8.30am to be seen on the same day.
The monthly charge has been kept at this low rate by not including any cover for dental problems if you are on holiday or abroad. Please consider checking your holiday insurance for this.
Will I be able to get a family discount?
Yes, we will offer a 5% family discount from monthly payment for relatives living at the same address.
Can I book an examination and hygienist visit at the same time?
Yes, and if you prefer to upgrade to a cosmetic hygienist visit please
make this clear as it requires a longer appointment.
Will we be offering refunds for unexpected events (eg. a pandemic)?- YES
If the practice is forced to stop seeing patients in person by any national or local guidance we will be offering a reduced payment or option to suspend your monthly fee. For those who remain in the plan will always remain available to be contacted for any dental emergencies during these unprecedented times to ensure you have access to urgent dental care.
Can I cancel my contract?
There is a cooling off period of 14 days. After this we require 30 days written notice.
