Here’s what you can expect to pay for your Year Two membership*:

Full-time associate dentist members: approximately £120.

Dental Core Training members: approximately £35.

Second FD year: approximately £35.

*The above rates represent the average Year 2 member. Subscription rates are tailored to your individual circumstances and may vary depending on risk profile.

How to renew

In June, you’ll receive your renewal documentation which will include your Year 2 subscription rate. See above for what you can expect to pay.

You don’t need to do anything right now. Your membership will automatically renew onto a full-time associate dentist rate. If you’re doing Dental Core Training (DCT) or a second FD year instead, simply give us a call when your renewal documentation lands in June, on 0800 561 9000 and we’ll adjust your renewal.

Your membership will renew in June, but you don’t have to pay anything until September.

Choose the No.1 for protection

As a member-owned, not-for-profit organisation, we exist purely to support you. Here are just some of the benefits you receive:

Expert advice from the largest worldwide team of dentolegal consultants

Our expert dentolegal team are there to help with queries and dentolegal emergencies whenever you need them. The advice line is even open 24/7, 365 days a year in an emergency. Whatever your question, problem or dilemma, we are only ever a phone call away.

Positive steps to wellbeing

We protect you in the good times and the bad. As you focus on treating your patients, we’re committed to supporting you and your mental health in a host of ways, including free counselling, a wellbeing app, podcasts, webinars and more.

Handling complaints with confidence

When facing a complaint, we can help you respond and this can stop a situation from escalating. In 2018 alone, we helped members in over 2,700 cases where a complaint had been made.

By your side at GDC proceedings

In the past five years, 1 in 3 warnings issued by the GDC related to personal conduct. We're one of the few defence organisations that can offer protection in these cases, going above and beyond to safeguard your reputation.

Protection with no limits

We’re proud to be discretionary, with no financial caps or limits on the indemnity we can provide. It's why we use people, not contracts, to make decisions.

Indemnity you can depend on

As part of the MPS group, Dental Protection has the largest reserves of any dental defence organisation in the UK. Our members have enjoyed the benefits of this stability for more than 125 years, and we are confident that we’ll be here for another 125.
