Dental Plan Benefits

Personal Dental Plans

Regular check-ups are the best way to maintain long term dental health and ensure that any dental treatment needs are spotted in good time.

More evidence has become available strongly linking your oral and general health. It has been shown that poor oral hygiene is linked with a higher risk of developing chronic illnesses such as heart disease, which means that seeing your dentist and hygienist, when recommended, is perhaps even more important than you might realise.

Our Personal Dental Plans provide you with your regular check-ups and hygienist treatments which are the best way to maintain your long term dental health, plus as a private patient your Personal Dental Plan includes a number of member’s benefits.

Frequently asked questions about our Personal Dental Plans

Active Smile Dental Care is a comprehensive dental plan for those who favour the security of knowing that their general dental bills are covered along with their general dental care needs.

No, our Active Smile Dental Care Plan is a maintenance contract that allows your dentist to provide you with a planned preventive dental care programme. Through modern dental knowledge and techniques your dentist can help you achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. However, Active Smile can arrange on your behalf supplementary insurance to cover the cost of treatment required as a result of an accident or temporary treatment in the event of an emergency.

Your dentist at our practice will complete a simple chart that takes into account your dental history, the current health of your teeth and gums and the preventive care programme recommended. We offer three fixed levels of general preventative dental care, which your dentist will discuss with you.

In return for your monthly payment you are entitled to regular examinations and Hygiene treatments, including scaling and polishing, ongoing advice and a personal preventive programme that you normally receive from the practice to help you maintain a healthy smile. You also automatically receive supplementary Insurance which can help you with dental injuries or dental emergencies either at home or abroad. Our patient advisors can provide you with further details of the benefits that our Active Smile Dental Care Plans provide.

Excluded are, private treatments for things like fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures and specialist treatment not normally covered by routine general dentistry, such as cosmetic and orthodontic treatments, dental implants and specialist referrals. A complete list of what is excluded is provided within your contract. Our patient advisors can provide you with a copy of this list.

You can choose to pay your fee monthly by direct debit, or annually by cheque or credit card. The payment is made to Patient Plan, who are our collecting and administration agent for all of our Active Smile Dental Care Plan members.
