Dental Insurance

Dental Insurance – How it works.

We are happy to accept all patients who have Dental Insurance. Our reception team will help you complete your insurance claim forms when you come to visit us.

We are also part of the VHI Dental Network. This means that Vhi Dental members can avail of Direct Payment of their plan benefits when they attend us for their appointments. Simply attend us and you only have to pay us for the costs of dental treatment not covered by your VHI Dental plan. There’s no need for you to have to claim back your benefits – simply sign the claim form. Please note: VHI Direct Payment is not available for specialist prosthodontic services.

How VHI Direct Payment Works:
