What is the Practice Membership Plan?
Our Practice Membership Plan offers a simple, flexible way to pay for your dental care. In return for a nominal monthly payment we provide you with a comprehensive programme of maintenance, prevention and treatment.
Why have we introduced the Practice Membership Plan?
As we hope you have already experienced, we are totally committed to providing all of our patients with the best quality dental care.
We want to be able to spend more time with our patients and provide prompt treatment using the latest techniques and the best quality materials. As part of our improved service to you we want to be proactive about your dental health and for this reason regular oral hygiene visits are included in our practice membership plan as well as your regular routine examinations .
Regular oral hygiene visits are essential to keep your breath fresh and to prevent gum disease. You may have very healthy teeth but if your gums and the supporting structures are not healthy you run the risk of losing teeth and perhaps contracting infections which in turn can cause complications such as heart disease and diabetes. This combined preventative programme is proven to be the best way of ensuring long term dental health. Over time , patients who participate in a preventative programme of regular exams and oral hygiene visits, such as those offered by our practice membership plan are shown to have a much reduced need for treatment.
Why should I become a member?
Membership ensures you have access to quality dental care , offers you a simple flexible way to pay for your dental care and is designed to encourage you to visit us regularly.
Regular visits will mean:
- Regular cleaning and maintenance of gum health
- Early diagnosis of problems
- Less complex and therefore less expensive treatment
Do I need to be dentally fit to join?

What is the dental accident & emergency insurance?

Accidental damage to your teeth as a result of a fall or blow.
