Continuing your membership

How to renew

It’s easy to renew your Dental Protection membership. A month before the end of your membership year you will receive an invitation to renew.

All we ask is that you check the information in your renewal pack carefully, making sure we hold the correct contact details and information about your scope of practice. This is because any missing or inaccurate information could affect your right to request assistance, and in some circumstances can result in your membership being cancelled.

You can easily update you details, or discuss any part of your renewal with us, by contacting our membership team on 0800 561 9000.

If you pay by Direct Debit and all your details are correct, your membership will automatically continue for another year. If you do not pay by Direct Debit you can contact us to arrange payment.
