Our Preventative Care Plan
At Acorn Dental Practice we believe prevention is better than cure. That is why we have tailored our preventative care plan to suit the needs of our patients. Instead of paying at each visit you pay us an amount each month, thereby spreading the cost over 12 months.
Our adult preventative plans start from £17.52 a month and range to £38.46 a month depending on how many hygienist appointments over the year you may require. All adult plans include two dental examinations a year and also receive 20% off any treatment that may be required. Our adult preventative care plans start for patients who are 18 years of age and above.
Our children’s preventative plans start from £7.35 a month and range to £14.39 a month depending on how many hygienist appointments over the year you may require. All children’s plans include two dental examinations a year and also receive 50% off any treatment that may be required. Our children’s preventative care plans are available until 18 years of age and then we can transfer you over to an adult plan.
Our Student preventative plan is £9.14 a month, included in our student plan is one dental examination and one hygienist appointment a year. Patients on the student plan also receive 20% off any treatment that may be required. Our student preventative care plan is available for those who are between 18 and 25 years of age and are in full time education as a student.
The visits include oral care and dietary advice, stop smoking advice as well as the application of Fluoride and X-rays where necessary.
Although you do not need to be on one of our preventative plans to attend the practice, doing so means you get 20% off the cost of any treatments you need. In addition, paying monthly gives you the incentive to attend regularly so we can catch problems early, and thereby saving you money.
A major part of our care plan is our screening service. We screen for oral cancer as well as cancer in the head and neck. During routine visits we have diagnosed cancer in our patients a number of times, without them being aware of any problem. This has enabled them to have successful treatment since it was caught early enough. Even patients who have none of their own teeth should have an examination every year to screen for cancer and other conditions. We have a preventative care plan tailored to these patients too.
