Indemnity Scheme

As a dental nurse, you will be required to declare that you have the necessary indemnity or insurance in place to cover you in your work. We understand that purchasing a professional indemnity is an additional financial commitment for many dental nurses. Therefore, if you require your own professional indemnity cover, we are happy to offer our members a discounted rate.

In conjunction with our long-term partner, Trafalgar Risk Management, we launched an Indemnity Scheme to give you, dental nurses, an opportunity to take out a professional dental nurse indemnity at a preferential premium rate.
