Worldwide Trauma and Emergency Callout Insurance

Emergency Call out – cover can be provided by any dentist worldwide who agrees to treat you. You simply pay the emergency call out charge to the dentist concerned and collect a receipted invoice. This will then be processed through the practice for reimbursement from the insurers and you will be refunded the call out fee, minus the excess, up to the policy limits. This cover is to provide immediate pain relief only; no additional or restorative treatment fees can be claimed. You should return to the practice in normal hours for any further treatment required.

Dental Trauma – cover is provided should you be unfortunate enough to suffer a dental trauma, for example as a result of a road traffic accident or an accident at home or at work. The insurers will settle the claim up to the policy limits and you will need to pay any relevant excess.

Hospitalisation – benefit is provided should you have to stay in hospital as a result of dental trauma.

Permanent Facial Disfigurement – benefit is provided should you be scarred on the neck or face as a result of the accident.

Oral Cancer – a payment will be paid upon diagnosis of oral cancer.
