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].
Whatever your question, problem or dilemma, we are only ever a phone call away.
Our dentolegal advice service is open to members with urgent queries and dentolegal emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If you encounter such an emergency please call 0800 561 9090.
Alternatively, you can use our contact form to submit your query securely online. One of our expert dental advisory team will respond as soon as possible.
In the interests of patient confidentiality, please do not include information in an email that would allow a patient to be identified.
Read our contact guidelines to help speed up your enquiry.

With the largest worldwide team of dentolegal experts, whatever your question, problem or dilemma, we are only ever a phone call away.
Please browse our advice booklets including Handling the Media and our FAQs
Advice booklets provide only a general overview of the topic and should not be relied upon as definitive guidance.
If you are a Dental Protection member and you are facing an ethical or legal dilemma, contact an adviser.
If you find yourself in the media spotlight please get in touch and we can provide experienced advice and support, including liaising with journalists and providing statements on your behalf.
We're available to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We actively encourage members to contact us for advice to provide peace of mind and to help prevent a concern or problem escalating.
Dental Protection does not use the number of requests for advice as part of its risk assessment of a member. This includes determining their membership subscription.
In exceptional cases, where a request for advice involves facts or circumstances of a highly unusual or unique nature it might trigger a general review of an individual’s risk profile. However, we stress that this would be very unusual.
So, if you want to discuss a dentolegal issue or need advice on how to prevent a concern or problem escalating, please do let us know - we are only a phone call away.
If you are concerned about any issue or incident which has occurred in your capacity as a dentist or dental care professional, we would encourage you to get in touch immediately to ask our advice. There is no stigma attached to seeking guidance or support, and we would rather you asked for help in time to avoid a problem instead of waiting and hoping for the best, only to find yourself in greater difficulties later.
Where you are eligible for Dental Protection’s occurrence-based protection you can seek assistance for any complaint or claim arising from an adverse incident that took place during membership of Dental Protection – even if it is brought years later, or if you have long since left membership. Occurrence-based protection means you do not need to make any further arrangements for long-term protection after your membership ends.
Our workshops are expertly facilitated, using a blend of presentations, small group discussions and activities, case studies, reflective exercises and opportunities to rehearse skills.
Find out more about our range of courses, including communication skills workshops, in-practice workshops and online tools.
