The benefits of having a plan in place

Patient benefits

Health benefits
The reason why membership plans came into existence was the preventive message that they carry. Generally, plan members have healthier mouths than their pay-as-you-go equivalent because they attend the practice more regularly, any issues are spotted earlier and treatment is swifter.

Budgeting for their oral dental care
By offering a membership plan you are supporting your patients to budget for their dental care with the guarantee that they are going to see the dentist they know and trust.

Access to 24/7, 365 days care
If your patient joins a dental membership plan which is administered by Practice Plan, they are then given access to our Worldwide Dental Emergency Assistance Scheme. This backs up your preventive message to your patients that you are looking after them at all times. So even when you are closed, they can still access the support and care they might need to ensure that they are kept as healthy as possible.

Practice benefits

Increasing your patient loyalty
A membership plan needs to be based on you, not us. We strongly believe that your patients are yours and we should stay in the background, which means that everything is based on your own brand enabling your patients to commit their loyalty to you and your practice.

Build a regular income
A loyal dental plan base means a regular monthly income from your committed plan patients. It reduces some of the financial pressure of running a business*, and while it can never replace your income fully it does stabilise a proportion of your income.

*98% of patients stayed on plan during the 'three month' lockdown period.

Reduces the risk of failure to attend
When you introduce a plan, you are enabling your patients to spread the cost of their dental care, supporting them to budget for their dentistry, and reducing the issue of affordability to attend. In turn, this means less white space for you and the ability to run a more efficient and productive practice.

Why Practice Plan?

Allowing a dental plan provider to administer your membership plan takes away the administration hassle. But not only this. By choosing the right provider for you, you can have access to a whole range of expertise and support to help you for the long term.

So why Practice Plan? Some providers seem intent on doing things as cheap as possible (never recommended), and there are others who seem more interested in building their own brand above yours.

We believe in building a membership plan based on your brand, and in giving you a range of 'added value' support services that are focused on your long-term profit and sustainability, not short-term savings. Sound appealing? Let’s get together for a chat.

Having loyal dental membership patients with Practice Plan during lockdown was the difference between my practice being here now or folding. I can’t say Thank You enough.
