Reduced subscriptions for practice clinicians
We believe that a DPL Xtra practice will work with us to maintain a safer environment for all those DPL members in their team. We reward this commitment by reducing the subscriptions payable by dentists, hygienists, therapists, orthodontic therapists, and clinical dental technicians working in the practice.
Free indemnity for employed, non registered staff including practice managers, trainee dental nurses and receptionists is also included with DPL Xtra.
DPL now offers discounted subscriptions for DPL Xtra foundation trainers. Please contact Member Services for more information.

Free membership for all employed, registered dental nurses and dental technicians
The number of complaints and GDC investigations involving dental nurses and dental technicians are on the increase and 80% of all cases handled by DPL aren’t related to clinical negligence. Having indemnity for clinical negligence alone simply isn’t enough. DPL Xtra gives you the peace of mind that all your employed, registered dental nurses and dental technicians have full membership with DPL including additional risks and accountability such as GDC investigations, complaints and inquests.
Online support for practice managers
Keeping up-to-date with the ever-changing employment and health and safety legislation can be challenging, but failing to do so can be costly. DPL understands that many practices will not have the resources, or the time to review complex new legislation and how to implement it. DPL Xtra aims to overcome this in a number of ways.
