At Wigginton Dental Practice, many patients choose to receive private care under the Denplan Care scheme. We believe that this allows us to provide the personal care and attention that you deserve, with the backing of a well respected company. It enables us to spend the time necessary to provide preventive care and advice.
Denplan Care spreads the cost of treatment evenly over the year, it covers all routine and preventive care, including check-ups, x-rays and hygienist visits. Unlike some other schemes, all routine care is covered, including fillings, root fillings, dentures, crowns and bridges – you only pay the lab bills.
Denplan Care also provides cover in the event of an emergency – anywhere in the World!
For a complete guide to what’s inlcuded under the Denplan Care scheme, please see the payment plan page of the Denplan web site.
To join Denplan Care you need to be dentally fit (no outstanding treatment) and then your dentist can assess your oral health and risks. This then places you in one of five categories. Your category is determined by your existing dental condition; this will be assessed and discussed before you join. This determines your monthly fee (A= low risk E= high risk), this is paid by direct debit. You can see the monthly payment for each band on our Fees page.
There are discounts available where more than one family member (or payment group) is registered with our practice:
- 2 group members gives a 5% discount
- 3 group members give a 10% discount
- 4 or more group members gives a 15% discount
Children may be treated under the NHS or our special Denplan for Children Scheme. Please see our Children’s page.
All proposed treatments, and any additional costs involved for laboratory bills, will be discussed with you before we undertake any work.
