Patient care is our top priority. From making sure our practices have accessible appointment times, to offering the latest in dental treatments - every aspect of your dental care journey is carefully considered.
We’ve been making changes to help our patients access the treatment they need, at their convenience.
We’re constantly improving through:
We have also created introductory private service plans, such as our Bupa Dental Essentials (formerly Oasis Basics) and Teen Align. These services are available to those who cannot obtain NHS care, but aren't able to pay full private care fees. Find out more in our patient care section.
We aim to provide every patient with an exceptional dental care experience. Patient care is our top priority and we continually measure our performance in this area. We're 100% compliant with the Care Quality Commission - an independent organisation that regulates health care services. As well as this, many of our practices have received the BDA Good Practice Gold Award, following strict clinical audits from the British Dental Association - the dental governing body in the UK.
Based on patient feedback between 95% and 98% of our patients say they'd recommend us to a friend. Our patients feel included in decisions regarding their care and they think their treatment was of good quality. For more information visit our Quality of Care page.
We aim to make top-quality dental care accessible to everyone across the UK. That's why we have over 400 practices nationwide, providing quality care to over two million patients. We're passionate about ensuring our patients receive the best care no matter where they are.
As part of our commitment to accessibility, we work closely with the NHS and run a number of NHS pilot programmes. These are aimed at maintaining and extending the accessibility of NHS dental care in the UK. You can easily find your nearest Bupa Dental Care (formerly Oasis Dental Care) practice using our Practice Search page.
We want all our patients to have complete confidence in our services. That's why we offer a one-year guarantee for our fillings, root fillings, inlays, crowns and dental implants whether you receive NHS or private care. For more information visit the Bupa Dental Care Guarantee page.
We believe in being completely transparent about the treatments we offer and their costs. Whether you are an NHS patient or are being seen privately, we will always explain your treatment options and the costs involved, prior to treatment commencing.
We also believe in making sure you have an informed choice in the dental care you receive. Where there is a range of treatment options available, our dental people will explain the benefits of each to you. For more information visit the Transparent Costs page.
Our patient’s wellbeing is always our top priority. That’s why, aside from ensuring oral excellence, we take our social responsibilities very seriously.
We consider environmental, social and governance policy (ESG) to be an important part of the way we conduct our business. We have a responsibility to our patients, staff, and the broader society in which we operate. We aim, through our practices and policies, to create value for our patients, minimise our impact on the environment and improve the quality of the local communities in which we operate.
We are proud to be the winners of the Social Responsibility Team of the Year award at the 2016 British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association Awards.
