Children’s Plan

two-blonde-kids-istock-for-sittingOur 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 dental treatment plan. This plan will be administered by DPAS who will make a separate arrangement with you to manage your payments under the plan. The plan will provide advantages both to you and us. It will allow us to plan your child’s dental care more effectively and provide the best chance of keeping your child 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 child’s routine dental care will be covered by convenient monthly payments. Our plan also provides worldwide Supplementary Insurance for dental emergencies or dental injuries whilst at home or abroad – essential cover for the rough and tumble of childhood.
