We understand that your dental degree is a huge financial commitment, and by your fourth and fifth years you are likely to have mounted up a significant debt. So we have developed a plan just for you, to offer you financial protection, if the worst were to happen and you could never start your career in dentistry.
No one wants to think about the possibility of not becoming a dentist, because of an illness or injury, but having some protection for the investment you have made could help ease some of the financial strain.
What is the plan?
Our dental students’ lump sum benefit plan, that will pay you £45,000/€60,000, if you can’t ever finish your degree and work as a dentist, because of certain illnesses or injuries.
How does it work?
Basically, you pay a monthly premium by direct debit and you will receive a one-off, cash lump sum payment for a valid claim. Your students’ plan will then end.
How much does the plan cost?
Just £5/€6.67 a month to help protect the financial investment you have made for your degree.

You can apply for our foundation dentists’ package, which pays regular benefit payments if you can’t work because you are ill or injured, and are losing income.
This package offers you a substantial discount on our standard premium rates for up to 24 months after you graduate. As a student member, your application process for this package would be shorter, as you have already given us a lot of information.
