We operate several Membership Plans via Denplan at Skipton Road Dental Practice. Denplan Care is a Full Care package which means you pay a monthly fee and for that most of your dental care is provided. The only exceptions are for crowns, bridges, dentures, for instance when we have to pay a technician to make your work. All our costs are covered but not the technicians. This enable us to choose the type of restoration that is required together and of course we will provide an estimate of that cost.
You will see both your dentist and your Dental Hygiene Therapist either twice a year or four times a year, depending on your dental and gum health.
We find that patients who join our Denplan Plans have less dental treatment and earlier interception because they are attending regularly and problems are spotted earlier rather than later.
Denplan Essentials is one of three types of Membership Plans we have at Skipton Road Dental Practice. This is a plan that offers you maintenance. That means you will see your dentist and dental hygiene therapist either two or four times a year for a full check and hygiene visit. If you need any extra care, say a filling or a crown, then you will be given an estimate for the cost of that treatment separately. There is no extra cost for these check ups and hygiene visits just any reparative care.
The Essentials package also gives you cover in case of an emergency or accident plus worldwide emergency cover, just as Denplan Care.
We also have a third type of Membership, Hygiene Plan. This allows the necessary number of visits to your dental hygiene therapist each year depending on requirements. If you have had gum problems you will more likely to need to see them four times a year, otherwise twice a year for most.
