About Dental Protection

Kevin Lewis BDS LDSRCS FDSRCS(Eng) FFGDP(UK) - Dental Director

"Working with the NZDA, its officers, its staff and its members has been one of the great pleasures of my role at Dental Protection and I take great pride in ensuring that our members in New Zealand enjoy the same membership benefits as a member on our UK doorstep

One of the remarkable features of the relationship is the continuing strength of NZDA's commitment to risk management, in a country which (because of ACC) does not have the same threat of litigation to concentrate the mind. ACC is changing, but New Zealand is certainly not a country where Dental Protection has had problems persuading the dental association to embrace risk management. The branch complaints, consumer affairs and peer review arrangements are exemplary and there are many countries that could learn a lot from the New Zealand approach.

Dental Protection members in New Zealand are doubly fortunate not only in having such a forward-thinking dental association to protect their interests - working in close partnership with Dental Protection - but also in the quality of the legal representation which it has at its disposal."
