Denplan to launch discount network

Denplan is to launch a discount network, designed to allow employers to offer staff access to dental treatment at discounted rates.

The network will enable employers to promote dentists that are close to their place of work.

The dental provider has offered its 6,500 member dentists the opportunity to join the network, with 1,500 across the UK having signed up so far.

Employees will be able to access this information via a secure website, which will only be available to those covered by one of Denplan’s plans.

Steve Gates, managing director of Denplan, said: “One of the challenges that organisations face is that people tend to visit the dentist that is closest to their home.

“I want to make sure people access the dentist in the most time-efficient manner as possible. In other words, I’d like them to see a dentist that is closer to the office than it is to their home.

“I think this is the part of the jigsaw we can now provide.”
