Exemptions

Some patients qualify for treatment free of charge on the NHS. If you carry an exemption card bring this along to present to reception staff. It is the patient's responsibility to understand which exemption they receive and a penalty charge may be issued by the authority if you are found to have falsely claimed free treatment. If you are unsure whether you pay for treatment visit the NHS choices website which explains who may be exempt from a charge.

Changing Denplan Dentists

If you would like to join our practice but are registered with another Denplan dentist there are three steps to achieve this. First of all we would recommend completing any outstanding treatment as treatment plans are not transferred to your new dentist and there will be a charge for any new treatment you receive. 

1. Ring your current dentist and ask them to complete a Patient Leaving Form for you.

2. Call Denplan on 0800 401 402 when you are ready to cancel the contract with your current dentist. Your contract with your current dentist will finish on the last day of the month. You wont need to make another payment until you register with our dentist. 

3. Contact Rice Lane Dental practice and make an appointment by letting reception staff know that you are a Denplan patient. You will need to fill in a new application form and sign a new contract with your new dentist. Bring along the Patient Leaving Form from your previous dental practice. Your new Denplan dentist is Patrick Marray.

If you are rejoining Denplan within 6 months of leaving there will be no registration fee to pay. 

Denplan Cancellations

We understand that personal circumstances may mean you need to cancel your plan. We are really sad to see you go but if you have decided to end your dental cover with Denplan, contact them directly to arrange this. If you are cancelling on behalf of someone else be prepared to quote their name, DOB and Denplan number when cancelling. Information for changing and cancelling payment contracts is available here: www.denplan.co.uk.
