You've been redirected to Dental Protection from The Young Dentist website. We recently merged The Young Dentist with its parent site www.dentalprotection.org. You'll find all the same information here, but also benefit from further help and advice provided by the wider Dental Protection site.
The site's search features will allow you to find information specific to your field and requirements, covering everything from Publications and Case Studies, to Conferences, e-Learning and membership information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on [CONTACT EMAIL].
Where a salaried dentist is following the agreed internal procedures of an employer, it is likely that the costs of a negligence claim arising from a clinical act or omission would be met. However, in some circumstances salaried dentists may be required to make a financial contribution to any settlement that their employer is required to (or elects to) make. Salaried dentists should have access to their own professional indemnity arrangements so they have the right to seek help, advice and financial assistance with these matters in their own name, and also request assistance with GDC hearings and in other instances where their interests may not be aligned with that of their employers. Dental Protection membership provides access to personal advice, guidance and support (including a 24-hour emergency helpline of experienced dento-legal advisers), and the cost of representation by specialist solicitors and barristers, where necessary.Members in employer-indemnified membership grades pay a reduced subscription, but can still apply to Dental Protection for full assistance and support.
Contact our Service Centre helpline to find out more about reduced subscriptions for members in the salaried services.
