Dentists working in Ireland hardly need to be told that it is a litigious environment in which to practise. But being a member of a protection/defence society is much, much more than simply having someone to pay the cheques if you are sued. It is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have experienced, professional colleagues to help and advise you on any dento-legal problem, and from knowing that the world's largest team of specialists in this field will be on your side, to protect and support you when it matters most.
This support is given by fellow dentists who really understand your problems and who can empathise with your feelings. They in turn are supported by a team of Irish lawyers who specialise in this field and with whom Dental Protection works closely on cases, on a day-to-day basis. It is a winning combination that no other organisation can rival.
We also publish Riskwise Ireland, a specialist risk management publication for dentists working in Ireland. Recent back issues of Dental Protection's publications published for members in Ireland are available here.
