Your career relies on your reputation

When it comes to protecting your professional practice, you need someone who fully understands the risks you face, the complexities of the clinical environment, and the weight of expectation that you carry.

Over 60 years of experience in successfully supporting and defending dentists like you gives us unparalleled insight into safeguarding your career for the future.

Our sole purpose is to protect, support and defend your interests

We are a not-for-profit organisation, owned by members and run exclusively for their benefit. Serving healthcare professionals has always been at the heart of what we do.

Whether it’s a claim for clinical negligence, an HPCSA matter or a difficult patient complaint, our independent experts are the best in their field. Our multidisciplinary team of dentolegal advisers, legally qualified claims managers and local panel lawyers can respond quickly and discreetly to ensure the best outcome.

Membership with Dental Protection can provide you with:
  • Defence in legal and regulatory proceedings
  • Support for your professional development
  • Expert advice whenever you need it

We go beyond defence

Both by helping you to individually tackle the risks of your practice, and by addressing issues in the wider claims environment, we are committed to helping you prevent problems from occurring, not just helping you resolve them.
