Why join a Dental Plan?
Many of our regular patients choose to join one of our dental payment maintenance plans. These allow our patients to budget for their routine maintenance and spread the cost over a twelve month period.
We have several plans depending on the future care we think you will require. For instance, some of our patients with gum disease need more attention from the dental hygiene therapist and may require up to four visits a year with them. For others one visit to the dentist and one visit to the hygiene therapist is enough to keep on top of dental disease.
Occasionally you may need some restorative dental work or you may choose to have some cosmetic whitening or teeth straightening, for instance. In this situation you will always be given a separate estimate of the cost of having these treatments.
NHS vs Private Care
As a practice we made a decision to start to move away from NHS care for our adult patients who want it and provide our care without the restrictions that often come with NHS dental care. For these patients we are able to offer the most modern techniques and materials including time to prevent disease and this is why the dentists work closely with the dental hygiene therapists to ensure this.
It may seem at first that the cost of our care is more than NHS care but we feel that our preventive maintenance plans will save your money in the long run and ultimately will save your teeth!
Good dental health and good medical health go hand in hand and we can’t place too much emphasis on this. By keeping your teeth and gums healthy you can help manage other diseases such as diabetes and possibly heart disease.
