Dental Defence Society: A new indemnity provider just for dentists

We are confident that we can offer a dental indemnity package that suits you and your needs. Whether it is cost, quality, security or personalisation, there are plenty of reasons to choose DDS. Here is what we offer:


By choosing to offer discretionary indemnity rather than contractual insurance, our policies are as affordable and flexible as you need them to be. You will not need to pay the 12% premium tax on insurance and you will not be restricted to issues covered by the terms and conditions of your contract. As dentists ourselves, we know of the cost pressures affecting us, especially with the difficulties we are facing after the Covid-19 pandemic. Anyone who does not make a claim may be eligible to receive a no-claims discount the following year. Affordability is important to us.


We offer you a tailor-made quote for cover rather than a predefined package so you choose what you want covered. Check out our membership page to see a list of what we offer. When calculating your quote, we will take into account the number of hours of each treatment you carry out and give you a price that is fair and reflects your hours.


We combine expert financial cover with insight into dentistry to ensure we deliver the package that is perfect for you. Our occurrence-based model ensures you do not need run-off cover, so you will have peace of mind now and in the future.

Legal advice

We offer 24/7 legal advice and want to help. There is no increase to your premium, no matter how many times you call. Dento-legal advice is provided by highly experienced dento-legal lawyers and our package also covers non-clinical dental advice. Indeed, we can even help with basic advice on non-dental enquiries too.
