Your Dental Fees Explained

Your Denplan fees are set by your dentist, based on the amount of time you will spend with them during the year.  Your dentist will also consider the costs of likely treatments based on your level of oral health as well as the location of the practice and its overheads.  Every Denplan Care contract is between you and your dentist.  Check out ‘What’s included in Denplan Care’.

Why might my fees change?

The amount you pay is dependent on your dentist's evaluation of your oral health and the amount of treatment you need.  Your fee will reflect the amount of time your dentist spends with you.  If your oral health changes, this will be reflected in your fee.  Additionally, Denplan dentists review their fees in line with business costs and professional regulations.

If my dentist sets my fees, what is Atlas’s role?

Atlas collects your payments and forwards them directly to your dentist, reducing paperwork and administration, leaving your dentist free to give you the best possible care.  And that's not all - Denplan also arranges Worldwide Injury and Overseas Emergency Insurance and provides a 24-Hour Worldwide Dental Emergency Helpline, to help you in case you suffer a dental injury or dental emergency away from home, and a Customer Adviser team to help you with any enquiries about your Denplan membership.

Why do I pay extra for specialist treatment?

Should your dentist refer you to a specialist for treatment, such as orthodontics or oral surgery, it would be chargeable as your dentist is not providing the service.  Your contract is with your registered Denplan dentist, and it's that dentist who is being paid to carry out your continuing care.  As specialist treatment is not part of your regular treatments and appointments, it's not included in your Denplan fee.

Does claiming on my Insurance affect my fee?

Making a claim does not affect your payments.  However, if your oral health changes as a result of a dental injury and you need to spend more time with your dentist, they may review your fee.
