Why choose Bupa Dental Essentials?

We can only take a set number of NHS patients per year, so we offer Bupa Dental Essentials so you can access a range of private treatments without having to pay full private prices or wait for an NHS appointment.

You simply pay for the treatment you have, when you have it, without contracts or monthly payment plans. Our prices are transparent and fixed so there are no surprises.

You can take care of the whole family with Bupa Dental Essentials. A child’s check-up is £11, and check-ups for under 5’s are free.

Bupa Dental Essentials patients have more flexibility on appointments and can choose our other private options at any time.
