Dental Insurance

The cost of dental treatment has been rising at an alarming rate in recent years

Even routine check-ups can be costly. And we all know how difficult it is to find a dentist willing to treat patients on the NHS!

That’s why it makes sense to get dental insurance. For a relatively small monthly cost you can receive the best of dental care all year round, safe in the knowledge that it’s already paid for.

We have teamed up with The Private Health Partnership to bring to you the best value dental insurance in the UK. A completely impartial and independent broker specialising in medical and dental insurance, The Private Health Partnership deals with every single medical insurer in the UK

What choice do I have?

The choice is yours – but as you can see from our explanation beneath – only once choice makes sense if you really care about maintaining your teeth.

As technology advances, the cost of dental treatment increases and less and less dentists will take on NHS patients – there aren’t many affordable options open to us.

The choices are:

Get dental insurance
For just a small monthly or annual payment you are covered for any eventuality.

Pay for your dental care privately as and when you need to
This can be extremely expensive especially if you need detailed or complex work to be carried out on your teeth. It also means you may neglect to get dental treatment to avoid the excessive costs.

Join a dentist’s scheme which allows you to spread the cost of dental care over the year
This means you’re locked into a contract with one dentist. It also means that although your routine costs can be spread out over the year, you may still have to pay the major, unexpected costs without any help.

A unique service

No-one else can offer you such a detailed, thorough and individual service as The Private Health Partnership.

Once you have submitted your details using our simple, easy and quick quotation form – they will contact all the dental insurance providers in the UK to get you an up to date quotation. You will then receive a letter, quotation and application form should you wish to proceed.

The quotation form will explain in full the policy details of the recommended insurance provider. However, you will also receive details of every single dental insurance provider that meets your requirements, and their price for your insurance. It’s a unique service which gives you full control over your choice.

A specialist dental insurance representative will then contact you to discuss the quotation – and see if you wish to proceed.
