Dental Care Plan Membership*
We have introduced our own dental membership arrangement to reward and look after our patients who regularly visit the practice.
Our plan allows you access to Emergency and Accident cover wherever you are in the world. Obviously if you are local you will ring the practice and see your team but if you are travelling or away on business you have access to a 24 hr helpline number to get help when you most need.
Just look at what you can gain from becoming a member!
Every six months, our members are entitled to:
- A dental appointment, including a clinical examination, a check for signs of oral cancer and routine x-rays.
- A hygiene appointment to provide a full clean of the teeth and gums and advice on how to keep your mouth healthy.
Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme****
Eligibility to request assistance in the event of:
- Dental Trauma
- Dental Emergency
- Oral Cancer
**** The Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme is a scheme established to offer support and assistance to dental plan patients who request treatment following a dental trauma and/or dental emergency or oral cancer. The Scheme responds to requests for assistance on a wholly discretionary basis. This means that, whilst the Scheme aims to provide benefits in most cases, it has no obligation to provide any benefit unless it first decides (in its sole and absolute discretion) that it should provide a benefit. There are some circumstances in which the Scheme is not designed to help and these are explained in more detail in the Scheme Handbook. Each request will be looked at individually to assess the request for benefit. Certain restrictions and limitations may apply in the event that the request is accepted and it is possible that the Scheme will decide to provide no benefit.
HOW DOES THE WORLDWIDE DENTAL EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE SCHEME WORK?
Whilst a member of the dental plan, should you suffer a dental trauma, a dental emergency or be diagnosed with oral cancer you will be eligible to make a request for assistance from the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme. The Scheme responds to such requests on a wholly discretionary basis. This means that, whilst the Scheme aims to provide benefits in most cases, the Scheme has no obligation to provide any benefit unless the Scheme Manager (the person appointed to administer the Scheme) first decides (in its sole and absolute discretion) that the Scheme should provide a benefit.
There are some circumstances in which the Scheme is not designed to help (these situations being similar to exclusions under an insurance policy) and these are explained in more detail in the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme Handbook. The Scheme Manager will look at each case individually to assess the request for a benefit. Certain restrictions and limitations may apply in the event that your request for assistance is accepted and it is possible that in some cases the Scheme Manager will decide to provide no benefit.
If your request for assistance is accepted by the Scheme Manager you will be eligible to receive benefit payments from the Scheme in the following situations (up to the limits set by the Scheme and published from time to time):
- The cost of dental treatment by any dentist up to a maximum of £10,000 for any one incident of dental trauma
- The cost of emergency call-outs and pain relief or emergency temporary treatment.
- A specified amount for each complete 24-hour period of hospitalisation wholly or partly under the care of a consultant who specialises in dental or maxillofacial surgery
- A specified amount if you are diagnosed with oral cancer and this is the primary cancer site.
You will also have 24 hour access to a worldwide dental emergency helpline.
Please refer to the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme Handbook for full details.
