Bupa has launched a consumer dental insurance product for the first time, in response to high demand from customers.
Dental Cover 10 and 20 from Bupa allow customers to choose whichever dentist they want to visit.
Dental Cover 10 offers customers a full refund for NHS treatment and provides oral cancer cover.
Dental Cover 20 allows customers with a privately registered dentist to claim up to £150 a year of dental insurance for routine treatment such as check-ups, dental x-rays and scale and polish. For more expensive, non-cosmetic treatment such as fillings, root canals, extractions, crowns, bridgework and dentures, customers can claim up 75% of each bill, with up to £700 paid back per year. Cover also includes emergency dental treatment and treatment for dental injury.
With no underwriting or pre-enrolment checks, set-up is quick and easy for the customer.
Bupa already offers corporate dental cover and dental cover for individual customers as an option on Bupa By You.
Sue Moore at Bupa says: "Having listened to our customers, we have designed a product which gives people extensive cover when they visit the dentist, whether NHS or private. We know that our customers will value the peace of mind that this gives them."
