We are accepting new Denplan patients and transferring your existing Denplan Care to DCS is very straight forward. Just ring us on 0191 3844447 for more information or to make an appointment.


Denplan was set up in 1986 by two dentists who wanted to offer an alternative to NHS dentistry. They created a system that simplified administration within the dental practice. Denplan Care includes preventive care and worldwide dental injury and dental emergency cover, together with the range of restorative dental treatments found in private dentistry, and helps you budget for your dental care.
