How Denplan can make your life as a dentist a little easier

We understand that although dentistry is a rewarding and challenging profession, it can also be time consuming and stressful. An example of this is when patients cancel last minute or don’t show up at all, leaving gaps in your appointment book, so you are unable to plan your annual income or book a holiday without worry.


How we help our dentists

Denplan means you receive a guaranteed monthly income, providing the security and assurance that enables you to plan and forecast profits for your practice. It also means you can book holidays and staff training days without the practice income being affected.

You can also apply for an online account and access tools through your dashboard to help save you time and manage your practice.

And if you come to retire or sell your practice, or wish to buy a practice, we have a dedicated team to help make the transition as smooth as possible for the buyer, the seller and the patients.

Supporting dentists

A guaranteed monthly income for you and budgeting for your patients

Denplan can benefit you, your practice and your patients

Good for your patients too

We also know that as a dentist, you care about the welfare of your patients. Our dental payment plans allow your patients to budget for their dental care, with the ability to choose a package that’s appropriate for their needs. Our pay-monthly plans can also encourage PFPI patients to visit you more regularly, decreasing their risk of needing more costly and time-consuming work later on. 

Our plans are designed to be used to support a preventive approach to your patients' oral healthcare and help them pay for those essential check-ups and for any necessary restorative treatment they may need.


Here are some of the benefits of being a Denplan member dentist:

  • A predictable and stable income
  • Plan holidays without stress - you’re not losing money by not being in the practice
  • Staff training days without practice income being affected
  • Accurately forecast finances and plan investment
  • A Goodwill Transfer service for dentists looking to sell, buy or retire
  • Support from your dedicated Denplan Consultant
  • Flexibility to keep your NHS commitment but also take on Denplan patients. This means patients have more choice and you receive a regular monthly income
  • Patients may be more likely to attend when paying on a monthly basis
  • The option of additional accreditation with Denplan Excel - a mark of quality that you can display to patients and the only independently validated clinical governance accreditation programme which keeps you up to date with all the changes in the profession and gives you access to our ground breaking new patient risk assessment, DEPPA 
  • Guidance with dental regulations, business support and marketing advice as part of your membership

Consultant support

A dedicated consultant to give you the support you want

“These previous 18 months have been a tough time for most, including my practice. Speaking to my fellow colleagues and peers, all seem to be struggling through these hard times. Saying that, with the help, direction and suggestions from our Denplan Consultant, not only have we, as a practice, been able to move forward but we have also been able to increase our profits”

Buying or selling a practice

Making the transfer of Goodwill a smoother process when buying or selling a practice

“Buying a practice that had a large Capitation scheme could have been a mine field, but I can safely say that this service and continued contact with a member of the team was invaluable during what was a very intense period of time. She was always on the end of the phone, even on weekends!” 

Ravi Nathwani, August 2013

Denplan for private practices

Make your private practice more profitable by converting PFPI patients to Denplan

“I discussed this with my Denplan Consultant, Bernard, and he and the Denplan Practice Marketing team gave me fantastic support. As a result, I have recruited 102 new Denplan patients in less than a year, 20 to 25 new private patients to the practice every month and now have well-trained and highly motivated staff.”

Offering more to our members with marketing, business and dental regulation support

“It’s early days for most of our marketing, but I’ve been really pleased with the results so far and Liz’s help has been instrumental. I completely trust her with all our marketing needs and she has even helped us with other elements of our business planning, from budgeting and cost efficiencies to training and CPD- not to mention helping us meet legislation requirements and communicating changes to our patients.”

Transition from the NHS

Concerned about switching from a NHS practice? We can help

“The whole conversion process was fantastic and our Consultant was so encouraging and motivating. On the first morning (after probably the worst night’s sleep I've had in my life) she called me personally to say that people were already starting to sign up online and we had over 500 new patients by the end of the first week. This was mind-blowing for me and really made me realise that I had made the right decision after all.”
