Dental Health Plan

Anyone who uses our dental centres could benefit from our Dental Health Plan. The plan can help manage routine dental costs for you and your family.

Becoming a Dental Health Plan member before you visit one of our dental centres means you won't have to pay a new patient registration fee and that your eligible routine dental care costs are covered, up to your benefit limits. To join, call us on 0800 606 570 ^ or visit a Bupa Dental Centre.

Step one

Arranging your treatment

If your dental emergency occurs in the UK:

  • within the opening hours of the Bupa dental helpline call us and we'll let you know what to do next
  • outside the opening hours of the Bupa dental helpline go to Find a Dental Centre to check the location and phone number of your nearest Bupa dental centre

If you're in the UK and your emergency dental treatment can be carried out in a Bupa dental centre:


  • give the centre your Bupa Dental Health Plan membership number
  • you won't need to pay for the emergency dental treatment costs covered under your benefits. Any costs not covered under your benefits will be your responsibility

If you're:


  • in the UK and your emergency dental treatment cannot be carried out in a Bupa dental centre or
  • outside the UK

Arrange an appointment with a dentist in your area. You will need to pay for your emergency dental treatment yourself and ask for a dated and itemised receipt.
