Finding the right dental practice for you

Did you know that 87% of adults who visit the dentist regularly would be happy to stay with their current dentist for the rest of their lives?*

This is great news, but if you’re not one of these, or you’re looking to start visiting a new dentist regularly, choosing a new dental practice can be daunting. That’s why we’ve put together a few tips to help you find a dental practice that’s right got you.

Start by taking a look at the practices in your area that offer Denplan payment plans – just visit our ‘find a dentist’ webpage and enter your postcode. Next, try asking friends and family who live locally if they have any recommendations for you. A personal referral is always good, and could save you a lot of time and research.

Now take a look at the practice’s website, or Facebook page. This should tell you about the practice; whether they welcome families, encourage preventive dental care, or offer flexible/convenient appointment times.

Don’t be afraid to visit the practice before you make a commitment. Nowadays, many dental practices are comforting, enjoyable places to be – with some offering holistic and beauty treatments as well as offering regular consultations and oral healthcare. Speak to the team to find out what services the practice offers, and to see if you would feel happy visiting them on a regular basis.

Finally, ask a member of the practice team about budgeting for your dental care. They’ll be able to tell you which Denplan plans are offered in the practice, and speak to you about possible pricing options.

Nearly a third (31%) of adults aged 55 plus who visit the dentist regularly consider their dentist to be a friend, and 74% of regular attendees would recommend their current dentist to their friends and family – with the right dental practice, you could be one of them!
