cover can be provided by any dentist worldwide who agrees to treat you. The cover is for a maximum of £95 per claim with an excess payable of £25 – total amount reclaimable £70. You simply pay the emergency Call-Out charge to the dentist concerned and collect a receipted invoice. This will be processed through the practice for reimbursement from the insurers. This is to provide emergency treatment only. You should return to the practice in normal hours for any further treatment required, provision of which may be already included in the Plan or may qualify for a discount.
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a dental trauma, for example, as a result of a road traffic accident or an accident at home or work, the insurance cover is in place for a maximum of £5,000 with a £225 excess applicable. In addition, should you have to stay in hospital as a result of a dental trauma, you will be entitled to claim £25 per day, after the first day. If you are scarred on the face or neck as a result of the accident, you will be entitled to compensation from £50 to £500.
Should oral cancer be diagnosed, you will receive a payment of £1000.
Registration and Insurance Scheme
If you prefer to remain a fee-per-item patient, we recommend that you take out the insurance only option. The insurance cover is as above and costs £25 per year which will include registration with the practice. It is, however, conditional upon you attending the practice either once or twice a year for check-ups and having any remedial work undertaken as soon as possible, payment for which is not covered.
