What’s the importance of preventive treatment?

Data from the Ministry of Health suggests that the majority of adults only visit the dentist when they have a problem1. Waiting until you’re already experiencing symptoms could mean that you’ll need more extensive treatment down the line.

Preventive care can potentially save you money, too. Combined with a 13% average savings^ on the Bupa Smiles plan, you might be able to save even more money while keeping your smile healthy. 


* Services are only accessible after three months of payment. Otherwise, a lump sum of $90 can enable immediate access to services.

** This product may not be suitable for patients who require significant periodontal work.
