Bupa Dental Insurance Network

We have a nationwide network of Bupa owned and Bupa approved dental practices. It aims to offer our dental insurance customers hassle-free access to quality care and discounts on treatment.

There are a range of benefits if you chose to use a dental practice in our network.

  • 20% discount off general dental treatment
  • No Forms, No Fuss Claiming
  • Our Preventative Care Promise
  • Reassurance that all the dental practices in our network have been quality checked

As a Bupa dental insurance customer there is no requirement for you to use the dental practices in our network, so if you want to carry on using your own dentist that’s fine too – you can still claim in the normal way.
