Our membership plan

Affordable, high-quality dental care

Spread the cost of your dental care

At White Smiles 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. To ensure we maintain the high standards our patients have come to expect, it is becoming increasingly important for us to accurately match the number and the needs of our patients to the resources we have available.

Research shows that preventive dentistry delivered on a regular basis greatly reduces the risk of dental disease and provides a platform for a lifetime of improved oral health. We encourage such an approach and with this in mind, we have joined with DPAS Limited to design a dental plan to reward loyal patients. This plan will be administered by DPAS who will make a separate arrangement with you to manage your payments under the plan.

The plan provides advantages both to you and to us. It will allow us to plan your dental care more effectively and provide the best chance of keeping you dentally fit. The advantage for you is that it should reduce the need for future treatment and you will have the peace of mind that all of your preventive dental care will be covered by convenient monthly payments. Our plan also provides worldwide Supplementary Insurance for dental emergencies or dental injuries, at home or abroad – plus 20% off certain treatments at White Smiles.

  • What does the Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme cover?

    You will be eligible to receive Benefit payments from the Scheme in the following situations, up to the limits shown on the Scheme Benefits Schedule, providing the Scheme Manager (at its sole and absolute discretion) has accepted your request for assistance:

    • The cost of dental treatment by any dentist up to a maximum of £10,000 for any one incident of Dental Trauma;

    • The cost of: - Emergency callouts; - Pain relief or Emergency Temporary Treatment;

    • A specified amount for each complete 24-hour period of hospitalisation wholly or partly under the care of a consultant who specialises in dental or maxillofacial surgery;

    • A specified amount if you are diagnosed with Oral Cancer and this is the primary cancer site.

    The Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme is designed to cover the cost of temporary emergency treatment whilst you are away from home and therefore excludes the cost of emergency treatment carried out by your own dentist, a rota dentist, or any other dentist within a 15 mile radius of your practice. However, call-out fees charged by any dentist to open their surgery (including your own dentist) are recoverable up to policy limits.

    In the event of a dental injury, treatment carried out by any dentist (including your own dentist) is covered up to policy limits.

    Please refer to the Policy Summary and Important Information leaflet and the Policy for full details of the benefits, terms, conditions and exclusions.
