I pay around £12 a month just for myself. That covers 2 check ups and 2 scale and polishes per year plus I get 20% off any other work required. I never pay for the kids though - they always get me to sign the NHS forms for them. I've never asked why but maybe they are not allowed to charge for children?
I pay as I go but I think that the dental plan is around £12. It sounds as if it is the same the one by Whata. Children under 10 are free with a fee paying adult though. I pay as I go as it is slightly cheaper for me as so far I've never had any other treatment.
Check if the dentist will take the kids on the nhs if you join as a private patient. That's what I did. My private plan is through work and is £9 a month. Can't quite figure out what I'm covered for though
I should add that’s for six monthly dental check ups and six monthly hygienist visits, plus 10% off the costs of any dental work (haven’t needed any since registering in 2012), free antibiotics if required and emergency consultations out of hours.
I pay £13 a month for two check ups and four clean and polish appointments a year. I don’t pay for my son. They told me there was funding/ provision for children, not sure what exactly, but they are free.
I looked at it as although you can get an NHS dentist here they are all awful. But its soo expensive. £70+ for my 6 year old for a first appointment! Im just hoping we can take really good care of our teeth until I go back to work!
My NHS dentist is excellent. In Scotland health boards have an obligation to provide NHS dentists in the same way as they provide NHS GPs. Check ups are free fillings are a small amount. 2 yearly optician checks are also free
I pay £13 monthly for Denplan Care - covers 2 check ups, 2 hygienist visits, biannual x-rays and any treatment I need (minus lab fees). The monthly price varies depending on the condition of your teeth. Most years I don’t use any of it behind my usual check ups / cleans but I cracked a tooth once and it was a godsend as it was fixed completely for free.
Try to get with an NHS Dentist - only £20 for a check up once a year.
You don't have to use a dental plan. I pay £35 for a check up so not much more and they spend more time on it (NHS dentists are always rushed) You will have to pay for the hygienist separately anyway whether the dentist is NHS or private.
