NHS Children’s Dental Care
This year we have extended the offer of NHS care to all children wishing to join the practice. We have endorsed the NHS Childsmile programme since its inception, to deliver the best preventive treatment and advice. Despite this programme finishing at age six, Fairmilehead Dental Practice continues to provide further free education, fluoride and all treatments into adulthood. Our dentists will also check the growth and dental development of your child’s teeth and, if necessary, your child will be referred early to our in-house orthodontist for preventive techniques.
As we want to offer the very best care, the latest treatment techniques and the highest quality materials, we no longer offer NHS treatment after a patient turns 19, so at this age, we would recommend Denplan Care.
Denplan Payment Plans
So you can budget for your dental care and spread the cost of any treatment, we offer Denplan payment plans to cover your preventive and restorative care for a small monthly fee.
As well as breaking up dental care costs into convenient monthly chunks, Denplan membership offers a host of other benefits:
- Routine preventive and restorative care including x-rays
- Appointments with our Oral Health Educators
- Hygienist appointments
- Major restorative care (excluding laboratory related costs)
- Denplan supplementary insurance including worldwide dental injury and emergency cover, mouth cancer cover and a 24 hour worldwide emergency helpline
- Discounts on cosmetic and implant restorative treatment
We are proud to have been a Denplan Excel Accredited dental practice for the last 15 years and have access to the market-leading Denplan Excel Patient Previser Assessment (DEPPA) tool. This lets us take an extremely accurate and sensitive measure of both your dental and medical health and also allows us to share these findings with you.
Denplan Care Fees
Denplan fees are based on your dental health history. There are five adult bands (A – E) with monthly fees ranging from £16.23 – £46.39. One option is Denplan Essentials (£16.78 per month), which includes two dental examinations, one dental hygiene appointment and all necessary x-rays. If you do need any treatment, you will receive a 15% discount on private fees.
We also offer Denplan care for children with monthly fees ranging from £9.19 – £15.68.
