Any patient may register with this excellent care plan through this practice. Many patients find that this is a helpful method of spreading payments whilst ensuring that all your dental needs are met.

The Highland Dental Plan provides an inexpensive payment scheme to cover all necessary dental treatment. A monthly premium covers all treatment, including examinations, x-rays, fillings, root-fillings and even visits with the hygienist. Any treatment that is needed to preserve your teeth is covered automatically. The only additional costs arise if treatment involves laboratory work e.g. crowns and dentures, when you pay only the laboratory fee, or the excess should you need emergency treatment.

About the highland dental plan

The Highland Dental Plan is a non-profit making organisation that has been set up by dentists in the Highland region, which is both controlled and administered locally.

How do i register?

Registration with the Highland Dental Plan is very simple. An assessment of your dental fitness establishes which payment band you are in. Cover begins as soon as you have signed the registration form. Please note that registration must be within three weeks of an examination or completion of a course of treatment.

Worldwide dental emergency assistance scheme

In addition to regular care, Highland Dental Plan provides you with the worldwide dental emergency assistance scheme (The DEAS). The scheme covers emergency temporary treatment by any dentist worldwide. It also may assist should an accident result in damage to your teeth then the costs of reparative treatment may be covered (within the limits of the scheme).
