Our People

Our Dentolegal Advisers

Our dentolegal advisers are dentists who have gone on to develop other skills to support the services we provide. Many of them have a legal qualification in addition to their dental qualifications. The majority of our advisers still practice dentistry and are very aware of the issues that face colleagues on a daily basis. With more than fifty dentolegal advisers working internationally, there is always somebody in the organisation who has the experience to assist you when a problem arises – no matter how unusual it might seem.

Around The World

The main jurisdictions where Dental Protection has members besides the UK are Australia, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, the Caribbean and Bermuda, Israel and Kenya. However, we do have smaller numbers of members in other countries, so it is often possible to continue your membership, even in unlikely places, for example if you are doing voluntary work overseas.

There are some notable countries where we do not offer permanent membership – particularly the USA and Canada. However, even in these jurisdictions, membership offers access to dentolegal assistance for Good Samaritan acts and for students on their electives.
