    How do I make a claim?

    Once you've registered to use the member portal, you can submit claims online without using a claim form. Here's how you do it:

    1. When your treatment is complete, please ask for an itemised receipt from your dentist which contains a full description of your treatment and costs

    2. Visit and login using your dencover username and password

    3. Enter your treatment details, upload a scan or photo of your receipt and hit submit

    Once your claim has been approved, we will notify you by email and payment will be made into your nominated bank account.

    Full details of our claims process can be found in your policy schedule.

    If you prefer to use a claim form, please contact us at or call 0800 180 4505 and we’ll send you a copy.

    How long does it take to receive payment once I’ve submitted a claim?

    We aim to assess claims submitted via the portal within 5 working days of receiving them. Once approved, we will send the payment immediately which may take 3-5 working days to reach your account.

    However, there may be occasions where we need additional information from you or your dentist which may mean it takes a little longer. We'll contact you to let you know if there may be a delay in processing your claim.

    It takes a little longer to assess claims submitted via post using a claim form.
