Dental Protection Ltd (DPL) provides indemnity, support and professional resources to dentists and dental allied professionals in the English speaking areas of the West Indies, extending from the Bahamas in the North to Belize in the West, and Guyana in the South on mainland South America. Although we have always had a presence in the region, Dental Protection has taken a much higher profile in the last ten years and is now the largest indemnifier of dentists and the dental profession in the region.
DPL operates on a mutual not-for-profit basis and is owned by the members - over 62,000 of them in 70 countries. It exists purely to protect and support the integrity and interests of those members. Membership provides access to independent, reliable and authoritative advice and information 24/7 every week of the year.
DPL has a long history of providing indemnity and support for the dental team and with its worldwide membership has more experience of cases involving dental care professionals than any other comparable organisation in the world.
