We have supported dentists with income protection insurance in the UK and Ireland for over a hundred years, and are the market leading provider with over 13,000 members. As a specialist, our members benefit from our in-depth experience of the dental and insurance industries, that gives us the knowledge to tailor our plans at every stage of a dentist’s personal and professional life.
Our dentists’ income protection plan is customisable; offering you the choice of how to protect yourself against the financial consequences of illness or injury and helping to look after the important things in life. Our members are also supported by our innovative and ethical approach to claims, as well as our personal customer service.
We are a mutual organisation so, with no shareholders, we exist solely for the benefit of our members, offering you the opportunity to share in our financial surpluses, with a bonus account available when you retire.
Dentaid was founded 20 years ago and works to improve oral health around the world. The charity started by reconditioning donated dental equipment which was sent to a prison in Ukraine so the prisoners could receive dental care. Soon unwanted British dental equipment was being repaired sent to dental projects all over the world. In 2000, Dentaid engineers invented a portable dental chair which meant dental clinics could be sent up in the most remote locations. The charity also developed a DentaidBox – an entire dental surgery that fits into a wheelie bin and can be operated without access to electricity or running water. Dentaid has recently sent these portable surgeries to Sierra Leone, Timor L’Este, Burkina Faso and Vanuatu.
Dentaid runs regular volunteering trips to Uganda, Cambodia, Nepal, Kenya and Zimbabwe and this year we have also visited Moldova, Morocco and Panama. Teams of British dental professionals set up outreach clinics in orphanages, schools, churches, prisons and community buildings and work alongside local dentists to offer oral health education, screening, fluoride treatments and emergency dental care for thousands of people. Dentaid has recently started sending teams of dentists to the refugee camps in northern Greece to respond to the huge dental need among the refugees. We also help to train dental professionals and share expertise with colleagues overseas. Dentaid has worked in more than 70 countries.
In the UK Dentaid works to help vulnerable people who find it difficult to access NHS dental care. This has included a project in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire which benefitted around 150 people and the purchase of a mobile dental unit that will provide outreach dental check-ups and emergency treatment at day centres, homeless shelters and refuges. We have also just received funding to provide dental health sessions at schools in Leeds.
