What is a Denplan Dental Plan?

A dental plan like Denplan makes dental treatment easy to afford. Your dentist will work out the costs of the treatment you need. You will then be given a monthly fee to cover those costs. Plans can cover any of a range of treatments, such as check-ups, x-rays and hygienist visits.


Denplan dental plans are suited to your oral health needs. From preventive care plans through to plans that cover restorative treatment, our plans are offered at over 6,700 dentists across the UK.

How does a Denplan payment plan work?

A Denplan payment plan is tailored to you. There is no reason to pay for work you don't need. Why would you? With a dental payment plan from Denplan, your dentist projects what treatments you are likely to need. The treatment costs are set out and you pay a monthly fee to cover the work. 

As long as your dentist offers Denplan, you’ll be able to sign up.

On the first visit to your chosen member dentist, they will discuss the different Denplan covers and which option is best for you. Your teeth will be examined and your dentist will then discuss the findings with you, set a bespoke monthly price and agree the contract.

If you are joining Denplan Essentials or Denplan Hygiene, your contract can begin straight away. If you are joining as a Denplan Care patient, any outstanding treatment will need to be completed first. 

As soon as you receive your welcome pack, you’ll be able to receive treatment.
