How does Denplan Cover work?
The scheme is a contract between you and your dentist. Denplan administrate this by collecting your subscription, a small part of this is used to pay for insurance cover provided by Denplan and the remainder paid to the practice. This means that your dentist can concentrate on the continuing needs of your dental health, rather than the actual amount of treatment you may need at any one time. The key advantage being that time can be spent on quality preventive care.
How is the level of my subscription calculated?
You are scored in relation to the number of fillings, root fillings, crowns and dentures you may have. The condition of your gums, the supporting structures of the dentition and your oral hygiene also attract a score. The total score will place you in one of five bands with a corresponding subscription rate. (see below)
