Your choice for dental care with our practice

As individuals we are having to make more and more provision for our own health needs. We at Bath Spa Dentistry believe that the best way of making treatment affordable, without compromising our high quality of care, is to offer you membership with our practice which provide the following benefits:

  • A convenient payment scheme for examination and hygiene appointments.
  • A fair and equitable system where everybody pays the same
  • Discount on routine fillings
  • Worldwide Trauma and Emergency Callout Insurance
  • Redundancy Protection

Worldwide Trauma And Emergency Callout Insurance

Emergency Callout cover can be provided by any dentist worldwide who agrees to treat you. You simply pay the emergency callout charge to the dentist concerned and collect a receipted invoice. This will then be processed through the practice for reimbursement from the insurers and you will be refunded the callout fee, minus the excess, up to the policy limits. This cover is to provide immediate pain relief only; no additional or restorative treatment fees can be claimed. You should return to the practice in normal hours for any further treatment required.

Dental Trauma cover is provided should you be unfortunate enough to suffer a dental trauma, for example, as a result of a road traffic accident or an accident at home or at work. The insurers will settle the claim up to the policy limits and you will need to pay any relevant excess.

Hospitalisation benefit is provided should you have to stay in hospital as a result of dental trauma.

Permanent Facial Disfigurement benefit is provided should you be scarred on the neck or face as a result of the accident.

Oral Cancer – a payment will be paid upon diagnosis of oral cancer.

Redundancy Protection (not included in the Registration and Insurance Scheme) Plan premiums paid for up to one year. A leaflet giving details of the insurance cover, limits, excesses and exclusions is available at the practice. Practice staff are permitted to provide you with information about the insurance that is included in your Plan on behalf of Practice Plan Limited, the Plan Administrator. However, practice staff are not permitted to give advice about the insurance, e.g. to compare this insurance with other dental insurance in the market. If you have any questions about this insurance then please call or visit Practice Plan Limited – 01691 677954.

Registration and Insurance Scheme

If you would prefer to pay on a fee-per-item basis, we strongly recommend that you use our Registration and Insurance Scheme. Registration with the practice costs £50 per year and will include the insurance cover described above (except Redundancy Protection). It is, however, conditional upon you attending the practice at least once a year for a check-up and having any remedial work undertaken as soon as possible, payment for which is not covered.

Emergencies

In case of an emergency during practice hours, please contact the practice immediately. We will always endeavour to see a patient in pain on the same day. If you require emergency treatment outside surgery hours, please telephone the practice where you will hear a message detailing the specific arrangements for that day.

Safety

We take all necessary precautions to safeguard you and our staff. We follow recommended guidelines with regard to sterilisation of instruments and the use of disposable items, e.g. gloves and needles. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

How Do I become a member?

In order to become a member of the scheme, you must be registered at the practice as a patient. If you are not currently registered, you will need to come in and see one of the dentists for a New Patient examination. There is a fee payable for this but as soon as this has taken place, you are eligible to become a scheme member. Please ask at reception after your initial appointment and an agreement form can be completed.

If you are already registered as a patient and want to join membership plan, you can do so at any time. Please call in at the practice or ask us at your next visit, and an agreement form can be completed.

The agreement form will require your signature and bank account details for the Direct Debit mandate. Direct Debits are collected from your account on the 8th of every month.

Benefit from cover will commence from the 1st of the month (effective month on the dentist/patient Agreement).
