  • Advice and support during your course
    One of the benefits of free student membership with Dental Protection is help and support during your course. We believe that it is important to be able to speak to an experienced professional colleague, who can understand and empathise with the situation you are in.

Working abroad?

Many graduates consider working abroad as an option following qualification and vocational training. DPL operates internationally which means it is likely that your membership can travel with you.

We operate in 70 countries worldwide so it is likely we will be able to indemnify you in your chosen destination.
