Our Payment Plans
Of course we are perfectly happy for you to continue to fund your care on a pay-as-you-go basis, and a guide to our current fees can be found here but we also have a number of plans for patients who appreciate the security of knowing they will have accces to a dentist when they need it and want the benefit of being able to budget effectively through a monthly direct debit for their dental care.
We have had a succesful partnership with Denplan for over 25 years and value the expertise they bring in helping to support and manage our dental plans, along with the worldwide emergency support line they provide. We have always found them to be a good no-nonsense company to deal with.
We have differing types of cover to suit different patients expectations and desires, and each plan is then custom set to a level for each person that will meet you planned level of care. The less care and suppport you are likely or planned to benefit from, the less you pay.
For exisiting patients you can often switch between plans if you find you would prefer a different level of cover, or if you wish to start a plan from scratch, please contact reception and they will advise you on the likely costs of the plan options that may be suitable for you.
For New patients to the practice, we will usually assess you at your first visit if possible, or later in your course of care if things are a little more complex in your case, and advise you of the potentially suitable options for you for long term care and support with your dental and oral health.
Dental payment plans can benefit the whole family. Where more than one member of the family is registered at the same practice and payments are made under one single direct debit, the following discounts apply:
Two Family members - 5% discount
Three family members - 10% discount
Four or more family members - 15% discount
Method of payment
Following your initial dental assessment, you will know exactly how much your regular payments will be. You will pay by monthly direct debit and there may be a one-off, initial registration fee of £15 (correct as of 21/1/2022).
Freedom to cancel
The Denplan programme is designed to give the reassurance of long term support. However, if you wish, you can cancel your agreement at any time by giving 21 days notice by telephone or in writing to your dentist and to Denplan.
More information can be found on the Denplan website or give us a call 01889 882873 .

Plans for Children
The plans for children we offer are a little different as of course they are all starting with a clean sheet, and our aim is to keep it that way! So the emphasis is on regular checkups, with guidance and support to help keep your kids on the right track and develop healthy habits and patterns for life, with tips, tools and resources to achieve this, along with discounts on preventive treatments ( such as fissure sealants) or further care if your child needs a little bit more support.
Plans for Children covers the following treatments:
- 2 Regular check-ups per year
- Planned X-rays as required
- Preventive advice and counselling, and access to a suite of material and online aids to prevention
- Access at a reduced fee to the Hygienists for Oral hygiene therapy/scaling/polishing and 1-2-1 instruction if the regular dentist and home supervision isn't enough.
- 10% off any beneficial treatment/prevention therapy advised.
- Worldwide dental injury and dental emergency cover (optional levels of cover)
- Access to Denplan’s 24-Hour Worldwide Dental Emergency Helpline
Denplan for Children excludes Orthodontic treatment, cosmetic treatment & dental implants.
