At Collins House we want to ensure that you maintain a high standard of regular dental care.
Denplan Care delivers this through a monthly, affordable payment without the fear of costly and unexpected bills. You benefit from having the treatment you need, not just the treatment you can afford at the time. Denplan Care is designed to give you good long-term oral health following our approach that prevention is better than cure. After an initial assessment, patients are placed into one of five fee categories. The monthly payment entitles the Denplan patient to all regular treatment and advice needed to maintain oral health. Patients only pay extra for laboratory fees, cosmetic treatments and Specialist treatments, such as implants and orthodontics.
We are delighted to have become a Denplan Excel practice after months of hard work and assessment. It recognises our commitment to customer relations and high clinical standards. The programme, developed by Simplyhealth Professionals, was the first to be approved by the Patients Association and helps dentists to develop better relationships with their patients through good communication and quality care.
By joining the Denplan Excel Certification Programme we are embarking on a process of continual quality improvement within our practice. You’ll have a visible sign of our commitment to quality – a sign that proves to our practice team, our patients, fellow dentists and the general public that we have reached the high standards required set by the programme.
Not only will we be demonstrating that the quality of care, treatment and service we provide is among the best available, you will also be safe in the knowledge that our practice exceeds standards of clinical governance, statutory requirements and industry best practice recommendations.
The Excel programme has been recognised by the British Dental Health Foundation and the introduction of DEPPA (an online oral health assessment) has further enhanced the benefits available.
And now the Excel programme has been recognised by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) who are the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess organisations that provide certificate services against internationally agreed standards.
UKAS accreditation of the Excel programme is ground breaking as this is the first dental programme or service in the world to achieve such recognition. As the GDC move towards introducing a revalidation scheme (known as “continuing assurance”) and the other regulators refine their approaches, we firmly believe that this places Excel dentists in a favourable position.
