Mutual - Not for Profit

Dental Protection Ltd (DPL) is not an insurance company, but a mutual (not-for-profit) organisation. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary company of The Medical Protection Society (MPS) which is the world's leading professional indemnity organisation for dentists, doctors and other healthcare workers.

DPL's primary purpose is to protect and safeguard the professional reputation, interests and integrity of our members, while working with them through education to prevent avoidable harm to patients. These and the other objectives of the organisation are set out in the Memorandum & Articles of Association of MPS.

DPL, within MPS, is a mutual membership organisation. The subscriptions paid by members over the years have created a strong mutual fund which remains owned by the members themselves. We do not exist to make profits, and we have no commercial (profit-making) partners seeking profits, or shareholders seeking dividends out of the subscriptions paid by members. The mutual fund is held in trust for the members, and one of the responsibilities of the MPS Council, and the Board of DPL is to ensure that this fund is used only for the specific purposes for which members have paid their subscriptions.

Dental Protection Limited is registered in England (No. 2374160) and is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Medical Protection Society Limited (MPS) which is registered in England (No.36142). Both companies use Dental Protection as a trading name and have their registered office at 33 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0PS.

Dental Protection Limited serves and supports the dental members of MPS with access to the full range of benefits of membership, which are all discretionary, and set out in MPS’s Memorandum and Articles of Association. MPS is not an insurance company. Dental Protection® is a registered trademark of MPS.
