The Friday Guest Blog – Get Dental Plans

It’s not often we see a new player in the dental insurance and plan arena but this product caught my attention and is worthy of your attention.

Having diligently worked their way through the innovation cycle, Marc and Paul are now ready to connect with early adopters.


Get dental plans was set up by Marc Benjamin and Paul Lewis in 2013 with the aim of offering simple, straightforward and affordable dental insurance plans. With 30 years’ experience in the healthcare industry, it was apparent that there was a demand for dental insurance and with all the publicity around the importance of maintaining good oral health, dental insurance is a preventative solution to encourage regular attendance helping to prevent any dental problems before they arise.

We have put in place a number of dental insurance plans which are flexible, simple to understand and implement, require no pre-joining checks or administration by the dentist. We have also negotiated discounted rates and various other incentives to our clients such a free electric toothbrushes and other money saving offers.

We feel that some of the plans available at present are restrictive and difficult for patients to clearly understand and use. The plans that we recommend offer complete clarity on reimbursement for every item of treatment.

Get Dental Plans in the main market their service and plans via dental practices with the aim of offering a simple solution to their patient’s requirements which will lead to more regular check-ups and hygienist visits for the dentist therefore increasing turnover without any outlay.

We simply arrange a lunch and learn session with the dentist and staff to provide an understanding of the products that we offer and encourage the dentists to display our leaflet on their counters and hand them out to their patients. We then do the rest.

We offer plans which are underwritten by major insurers and immediate cover is available for check-ups and hygienist visits. Cover is usually available immediately for treatment such as fillings, root canal, crowns and bridges.  Implant cover is also available with generous limits as well as child and adult orthodontic cover.

Dental insurance is becoming very popular for individuals and is sought after by employees of companies.
