We’ve got dental insurance plans to make you smile

Private dental insurance means you can choose your own dentist from among thousands working in practices across the UK, and need not worry about meeting unexpected treatment costs.

There are so many dental plans to choose from, depending on your particular needs, budget and type of dental insurance cover you may require. Even the lowest cost policies include essential preventative care such as check-ups and advice, as well as hygiene treatments to help keep your teeth and gums in good order such as scale and polishing. Invest more in your oral health, and your cover will include more expensive treatment like bridges, crowns, root canal treatments and periodontal (gum) care.

We help you choose the right private dental insurance policy for you

As one of the UK’s leading health insurance specialists, we work closely with the leading private dental care providers, including AXA PPP Healthcare, BUPA, Simply Health, WPA, Denplan and Cigna.

Using our extensive experience and market knowledge we can provide informed, independent and expert advice to find and, if necessary, tailor the best dental insurance policy for you.

Things to consider before taking our a dental insurance policy

You will need to take into account the type of dental treatment you feel appropriate, and the budget you are willing to commit for protecting your dental health.

Most dental insurance polices offer what might be regarded as routine dental or essential care, including check-ups, x-rays and hygiene treatment. But for more comprehensive dental care, from fillings through to crowns, root canal, denture, gum treatments and worldwide cover, you will need to choose higher levels of dental insurance cover.

  • Don’t wait until you are having dental problems before thinking about taking out insurance.
    Many providers will not let you claim for two or three months after you take out a policy.
  • Are you aware of the costs you may need to pay for treatment if you’re not insured?
    As an example, a crown with NHS treatment currently costs £256.50 whilst a private practitioner could charge as much as £400-£500.
  • Are you currently able to access a local dentist and appointments convenient to you?
    Private patients can choose a dentist from a nationwide list and enjoy greater flexibility over when they are seen.
