Boots Core Dental Plan

Take care of your teeth and keep down the cost of trips to the dentist with the Core Dental Plan from Boots

The Boots Core Dental Plan reimburses you for your costs of NHS dental treatment and has been designed in line with the NHS system of charging in England and Wales. You pay one charge to complete your course of treatment, even if you need to visit the dentist more than once.

Please note that to benefit under the Boots Core Dental Plan you must have an NHS dentist and will not be covered for any private treatment, except where the treatment is emergency dental treatment.

What's covered by the Boots Core Dental Plan?

The Core Plan provides cover for the following NHS treatment:

  • Routine dental treatment – including check-ups, x-rays and hygienist visits, as well as treatments such as fillings, bridges and crowns
  • Private Accident & Emergency treatment – up to £500 per person, subject to policy limits for any dental costs resulting from an accidental dental injury. Annual maximums apply
  • Hospital Cash Benefit – £100 per night for NHS treatment. There is an annual maximum limit of £5,000

What happens if I live in Northern Ireland or Scotland?

You can still benefit from the Core Plan. However, your NHS Dentist will charge you for individual treatments, so the plan will work in a different way. The amount you will be reimbursed will depend on what you have paid for your treatment and is subject to the NHS band and annual limits. We will reimburse you an amount equal to the lowest of either what you have paid, or the reimbursement level of the banding appropriate for your most expensive treatment. Please see below for an example.
