There are very good reasons why dentists recommend regular six-monthly visits to the dentist. Regular dentist visits are vital to maintaining healthy teeth and gums and research shows maintaining a healthy mouth greatly reduces the risk of more serious dental problems, like gum disease and cavities, down the line. Prioritising your dental health is also linked to less problems with overall health and well being. According to the FDI World Dental Federation
Preventing more serious dental problems developing by looking after your teeth and oral health on a regular basis is one major advantage of joining a dental membership plan but there are other benefits too.
Once you complete the registration form and set up the monthly direct debit you’re good to go. It’s as easy as that. You’ll know exactly what you pay for dental cover every month, you’ll have the automatic reminders and incentive to visit your dentist for the recommended 6 monthly check-ups and you’ll have the peace of mind that any serious dental issues will be identified early, treated, and cleared up before any further pain and discomfort develops.
At Wayside Dental Practice in Harpenden, Hertfordshire we’ve teamed up with DPAS to offer our patients dental membership plans. As well as the benefits mentioned below, you’ll get the following:
For all adults just £23.20 per month gets you:
Fees for young adults aged 18-21 just £14 per month
Fees for children aged 6-17 just £8 per month
We have two dental hygiene plans – the Hygiene Plan and Hygiene Plus Plan. With the Hygiene Plan you get all of the above benefits, except the scale and polish appointments are replaced with 2 full hygiene appointments per year. With the Hygiene Plus Plan, you get 4 hygiene appointments per year in place of the 2 scale and polish appointments. We’re so lucky to have so many patients from Harpenden, St Albans and all over Hertfordshire who are so conscientious about their dental and oral hygiene. Despite having four dental hygienists at the practice we only have room for a limited number looking to join our dental hygiene and hygiene plus plan so please contact the practice to ask about availability.
If you have any questions about our plans, please contact our reception team who will be happy to provide further information and guidance.
