Supporting dentists

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.

Helping to support our dentists, their practice and their patients

With support services built into your membership.

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
