Who we are

Dental Defence Society (DDS) is a new indemnity provider set up to support and protect dentists so theyre able to go about their work with complete peace of mind. DDS is a mutual society with an executive committee made up of dentists who are acutely aware of the challenges facing GDPs and nurses working to the General Dental Council principles.

DDS aims to provide an affordable, bespoke, high quality service that has been designed by GDPs for GDPs. We offer 24/7 access to dentolegal advice, so you’ll always have access to experienced, trained professionals if you face a complaint, claim of negligence or a tricky issue – and we even offer non-dental support to members too.

Marsh – formerly known as JLT – provides insurance advice to and places cover on behalf of Dental Defence Society (“DDS”). DDS then has absolute discretion on whether to provide any benefit to a dental member. Marsh is an independent insurance intermediary, an accredited Lloyd’s broker and is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the Financial Conduct Authority

DDS vows to react quickly, sensitively and professionally as soon as you require assistance – and pledges to be a medical defence organisation that can continue to reflect the needs of the profession and adapt as those evolve over time.
