Branded treatments and services

Whitening can be an important part of a smile makeover. We always check the suitability of your teeth, as it may not be recommended for some patients with high sensitivity. It’s important to know that we may not be able to treat all of your teeth: whitening can’t alter the colour of fillings, crowns, veneers, for example. Your dentist can explain and suggest any options open to you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

No, Bupa Dental Care practices are open to everyone. If you do have Bupa dental insurance, at selected practices we can guide you through your claim.

First, please check that our practice offers the services you’re looking for, then simply use the referral form on our contact page. Do feel free to give us a call and tell us what you’re looking for.

COVID-19 safety tariff (per private appointment)

The health, wellbeing and safety of our patients, their families and our people is our priority and always will be.

That’s why, following the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve taken the essential decision to put extra safety measures in place right across our practice, so you can continue to visit our dentists with the reassurance that you are secure and protected.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has always been worn by our clinical teams in the practice, but the new safety measures mean that our clinicians will now be wearing enhanced PPE to minimise the risk of cross contamination during treatment.

To ensure that each patient has the protection they need we have to apply a separate tariff for the enhanced PPE that is required for each dental treatment. The tariff will vary by treatment type – please contact your local practice for more information.

This is a temporary measure - we are committed to keeping costs to a minimum and hope to reduce this further as the cost for PPE reduces, or the need for enhanced safety measures decreases or are no longer needed.

Thank you for your understanding.
