Denplan Care is a monthly payment plan which provides cover for your routine (check-ups, x-rays and hygiene visits) and restorative (crowns, bridges or fillings) dental treatment. The amount you pay is based on your oral health and how much dental treatment you will need. After an initial assessment you will be placed into one of five categories. This will determine the monthly fee.
Both Denplan Care and Denplan Essentials include dental injury and dental emergency cover and mouth cancer cover (not immediately available). You will also have access to Denplan’s 24-Hour Worldwide Dental Emergency Helpline.
"Dental decay is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. It can have a huge effect on general overall health and yet it is entirely preventable, which is why it is so important that patients prioritise their oral health" Roger Matthews, Chief Dental Officer, Denplan.
Preventive dentistry is the foundation on which Denplan was built. A dental payment plan enables you and your dentist to focus on regular care to help minimise the risk factors before they cause pain and may need costly treatment.
We recommend that our patients follow a programme of preventive care using the skill of our practice team and the support of a dental payment plan.
- Your dentist will talk to you about the dental plans so that you can choose which one is right for you - Denplan Care or Denplan Essentials.
- A dentist at our practice will then carry out a dental assessment. The amount you pay will be decided by your dentist and is based on your oral health and how much dental treatment you will need. The payment will be collected monthly by Denplan.
Please note that there is a one-off registration charge which is equal to one month’s fee. The care contract is with your dentist and the Supplementary Insurance is with Denplan.

Dental payment plans are designed to be used positively to support a preventive approach to your oral healthcare through regular check-ups, dental care and advice to help stop possible expensive or complex dental treatment. Denplan Care not only provides you with help to pay for your routine (check-ups, x-rays and hygiene visits) dental care but for any restorative treatment you may need such as crowns, bridges or fillings. Denplan Essentials pays for all your routine dental treatment which is so important to help ensure you keep teeth and gums healthy.
Q. How is my fee calculated?
A. Your dentist completes a simple chart that takes into account your dental history and the current health of your teeth and gums. A preventive care programme is then recommended. These factors will place you in one of five categories for which we have already calculated the fee. (Denplan Care only)
Q. How will my fee be paid?
A. You will pay your fee monthly by direct debit.
Q. Where does my payment go?
A. A small percentage of your payment is retained by Denplan to cover administration and your emergency dental insurance. The bulk of your payment is sent to your dentist
