Kids Dental Plan

Kids Dental Plan

Our Bilton Kids Plan

Our aim is to provide high quality care and treatment in a relaxed, comfortable and safe environment. We are committed to continuing education and keeping abreast of advances in modern dentistry. Tooth decay is one of the most common preventable diseases and to prevent it requires a commitment of time and effort. With the correct habits, there is no reason why your child should not have healthy teeth for life. Research shows that preventive dentistry delivered on a regular basis greatly reduces the risk of dental disease in children and provides a platform for a lifetime of improved oral health.

With this in mind, we have joined with DPAS Limited to design a comprehensive children’s dental treatment plan. Our Kids Plan focuses on the delivery of preventive dentistry on a regular basis, encouraging good diet and oral health habits in your child’s formative years and thereby minimising the need for fillings and extractions. This plan will be administered by DPAS who will make a separate arrangement with you to manage your payments under the plan.

When you enrol your child onto our Kids Plan, you will have the peace of mind that all your child’s routine dental care will be covered by convenient monthly payments. Upon joining the dental plan, you will also be eligible to request assistance from the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme for dental emergencies or dental traumas whilst at home or abroad (see overleaf) – essential cover for the rough and tumble of childhood.

How do you enrol your child onto our kids plan?

We carry out an assessment to ensure that our plan will meet your needs and you will be advised of the monthly amount to pay to cover all your child’s routine dental treatment and the charges for management and administration payable by you to DPAS.

Then joining is very simple. All you have to do is complete a registration form for us and a Direct Debit mandate and authorisation form for DPAS on behalf of your child.

In addition to your first monthly payment, an initial registration fee of £10 per person will be payable by you to DPAS and will be included in your first Direct Debit payment.

If you choose to cancel your child’s plan for any reason you can do so by simply giving us one month’s notice.

What happens in an emergency?

You will have access to a 24 hour, 365 day worldwide dental emergency helpline, which will endeavour to find an English speaking dentist to assist you.
