Making your dental care more affordable
An IndepenDent dental care plan allows you to spread the cost for your routine dental care with affordable monthly payments. And to help you get started, we also don't charge a joining fee for our plans (unlike some providers).
Regular dental visits for healthy teeth and gums
The cost of an agreed number of examinations and any necessary x-rays are covered by the plan. Seeing the dentist regularly means that they can keep a close eye on your teeth and gums. Potential problems can be identified early, saving you unnecessary time and expense.
Your monthly payments also cover the cost of an agreed number of hygiene appointments. Having your teeth professionally cleaned, to remove plaque and calculus, can help you combat gum disease, as well as making you feel good about your smile.
During your visits your dentist can advise you about a programme of preventive care, which can help maintain and improve your oral health.
