Denplan helps you spread the cost of private treatment

We firmly believe that preventive dentistry is, as it says, dental care that’s aimed at preventing rather than treating. If you follow a preventive approach to your oral health you are unlikely to need unexpected and potentially costly treatment in the future. Payment plans can help you with this by allowing you to budget for your dental care, encouraging you to see your dentist on a regular basis, and prioritising your oral health.

Our dentists will take the time to advise you on the best way to look after your teeth and gums. They will also be less restricted on the dental treatment and materials they can offer you. We want your visits to always be a positive and pleasant experience.

All practicing dentists in the UK have to be registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who regulate and inspect dental practices.

The Denplan Excel certification programme is an additional mark of quality. To join Denplan Excel, a practice must demonstrate continued commitment to quality improvement. Practices must also pledge to use the most appropriate procedures and dental knowledge to ensure patients are receiving the highest standards of care from start to finish, and encourage patients to be involved in any decision making stages.

We are very proud to be one of only a handful of Denplan Excel certified practices in Gloucestershire. In order to maintain our certification, we are regularly assessed by highly qualified Practice Advisors to ensure that we are complying with, and in many cases, exceeding the statutory regulations and recommendations for best practice in dentistry. Fewer than 5% of dentists in the UK are Denplan Excel certified so you can be confident that you are in very safe hands at St.James Dental.

At St.James Dental we have a choice of three different plans to suit your individual needs:

  • Denplan Essentials – An easy way of keeping up the great habit of regular examinations and hygiene treatment.
  • Denplan Care – A comprehensive dental plan that pays for all your routine preventative dental care.
  • Denplan Flexible Payment Plan – A simple way to set money aside to cover the cost of your private care

Your dentist can help you choose which is the best plan for you.
