Q What is Denplan Essentials?
A Denplan Essentials is a dental maintenance payment plan. It helps you spread the cost of your routine preventive dental care as specified by your dentist. The plan includes worldwide dental injury and dental emergency cover (Supplementary Insurance) and access to Denplan’s 24-Hour Worldwide Dental Emergency Helpline for support and dental advice.

Q What if I need restorative treatment – is this covered by Denplan Essentials?
A No. Any restorative dental treatment needed will have to be paid for separately (e.g. fillings, crowns or bridges), unless your dentist chooses to provide additional treatment as part of your contract. The practice team will be able to let you know your dentist’s treatment fees.

Q How much does it cost?
A As the dentist sets their own fees, they will be able to give you an indication of the price you’ll pay. It will depend on the amount of care you need. Please note that there is a one-off registration charge of £15 on joining.

Q When will my Denplan Essentials contract start?
A Your dentist will agree a start date for your Denplan Essentials contract with you. This date will always be on the first day of the month.

Q Are there any discounts available?
A There may be discounts where more than one member of a family (or group) is registered with any Denplan dentist at one practice, the following discounts may apply:

  • Two family/group members – 5%
  • Three family/group members – 10%
  • Four or more family/group members – 15%

Please note: to qualify for discount all payments must be collected using a single Direct Debit. All correspondence will be sent to the address of the person who pays for the dental payment plans.

Q Who am I in contract with?
A For the dental care you receive under Denplan Essentials you are in contract with your dentist. For the Supplementary Insurance element you are in contract with Simplyhealth Access and you are in contract with Denplan for the Denplan Insurance Services.
