Tesco Dental Insurance Cover Free Oral B Electric Toothbrush

Found 10th Apr 2008
Get a free Oral-B ProfessionalCare 5500 rechargeable toothbrush worth £34.99 when you purchase Tesco Dental Insurance.

Cover starts from £8.95 a month and covers you for upto £200 for routine work and £2000 from non routine work. It includes worldwide cover, mouth cancer and dental emergency cover.

Possible Quidco and Clubcard points could also be had.

The best bit about this deal is that unlike most dental insurance policies they don't require you to go for a checkup before qualifying for cover, as long as you wait out the qualifying period (1 month for NHS) and (3 months for Private) you can qualify for re-embursment of treatment. So even if your like me and haven't been for ages if you can find an NHS dentist then after 30 days you can go get treatment and submit you claim.

You pay extra if you go for the premium cover which covers private and NHS costs.

Also you can claim immediately for emergency cover there is no qualifiying period for this.

As with all these types of deals this is not financial advice, do your own research and check the small print but this seems a good deal for me.

I wonder if after you waited for the month, got teeth done and then cancelled it. Oh well something to chew on. thanks



BTW £38 a month for 2 adults 2 kids on premium private care.

there was something the T & C that said if you cancel before 6 months they reserve the right to charge you for the toothbrush but otherwise you'd be within your rights to cancel.

thanks, we all need our teeth doing, my lad who is 13 has waited over 12 months just for a appointment. This would be ideal

I researched this a few weeks ago and whilst there is not a lot in it, this seemed to be the best deal.

I thought that you got the money back for treatment that you had done at your dentist; surely you would not get an appointment any quicker.

"Cover starts from £8.95 a month and covers you for upto £200 for routine work and £2000 from non routine work"

I took this out a few weeks back and did not see the above mentioned. What does it mean by routine and non routine? Is routine checkups/clean/polish etc and non routine all other work?

Did someone say a wait of only 1 month on the premium cover? that sounds like a good deal then .... my OH needs to see a dentist soon ...

It's 1 month wait on the nhs cover and I think 3 months wait on the premium cover.

by routine i think they mean check ups and teeth cleaning, non routine is remedial work like a filling or a crown

That sounds ok then. I have 2 weeks to wait until my 1 month wait is up an an appointment has been made for a few days after. I managed to find a local dentist taking nhs patients which is very lucky considering I have not been to a dentist in 15 yrs:oops:

cool, let us know how you get on with the claim, how easy etc. I'm in a similar position as you i haven't been in about 10 years.

I wonder what would happen if your NHS denist refused to do some of the work on the NHS and referred you to a private dentist (i believe this is common these days).
