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].
Find all the information and forms to manage and make changes to your Dental Protection Xtra group scheme
We know that when dentists and DCPs join or leave your practice team this may affect your Dental Protection Xtra group membership. Please let us know about this as soon as possible so we can help you retain or increase your membership benefits.Here you can find out more about benefits relating to your group scheme and get help to manage the membership of your group.
To make a dentist who is already a Dental Protection member part of your group arrangement please ask them to contact us quoting their membership number and your practice ID. The practice ID can be found on the top right corner of the certificate for all members included in your Practice Xtra package.
The dentist first needs to apply for a Dental Protection membership. To do so complete either an application form for dentists or DCPs. If the applicant wishes to pay by Direct Debit the account holder should also download and complete a payment form and include it with the application. Completed application and payment forms should sent to the address shown at the top of the form.
Please ensure the dentist clarifies that they can leave their current dental indemnity organisation and that they complete and submit their application form before their existing indemnity/insurance arrangement expires as Dental Protection membership cannot be backdated. An application can be signed and dated up to eight weeks in advance.
In order to transfer the practice scheme to a new practice principal they must first be a member of Dental Protection or should apply as shown above. Then they should complete and return a transfer form.
Our workshops are expertly facilitated, using a blend of presentations, small group discussions and activities, case studies, reflective exercises and opportunities to rehearse skills.
