Helping you to budget for your dental treatment
We understand that some aspects of dentistry may seem costly. We only use the very best materials available, and are conscious of the need to keep our charges reasonable whilst maintaining the highest possible standards of care. Any treatment plan is fully discussed with you, with all treatment options explained and a full written estimate will be given to you. We have a comprehensive range of payment options available to help you budget for your dental treatment. Our comprehensive monthly Careplan covers all dental treatment for a fixed monthly amount of between £17.44 and £53.77 (with the exception of laboratory bills). Our Maintenance Plan, for a fixed monthly fee of £18.71 covers routine dental check-ups and preventive treatment, and also offers a discount on all other treatment. Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme is included in all of our plans.
We are also now able to offer patients the choice to spread the cost of more extensive treatments (over £500) using our flexible interest-free and low cost payment options.
Patients may also choose to pay by instalments, or receive a 5% discount if they choose to settle their bill in full at the beginning of treatment (this applies to private treatments totalling over £500, excluding laboratory bills).
