When your dental consultation just can’t wait

The Bupa Dental Care support line is here to help. We’re ready to help discuss an emergency by phone or video, offer a second opinion or provide reassurance. This service is free, and doesn’t affect your benefit limits. You can use our Bupa Dental Care dentists even if you’re not usually their patient.

If you're struggling to access face-to-face care with your usual dentist, we can also book an appointment for you at a Bupa Dental Care practice.

Please call 0333 015 5255^ to use this service.

Virtual oral health check up

If you can't or don't want to visit a dentist face-to-face, you can now choose to book a virtual oral health assessment with various suppliers, including Instant Dentist‡‡.

As a Bupa dental insurance customer, you can then claim the costs back in line with your policy limits. The assessment will use camera and video technology. You won’t speak directly to the dentist, but they’ll review the imagery before creating a personalised report for you. This will include your oral health risks as well as tips for improvement.
