Protection news for BSDHT members


Income Protection has long been an essential protection policy for BSDHT members. As a mostly self-employed profession, it is important for you to be able to support yourself if you’re unable to work due to injury or illness.

Changes to protection policies

There have been some changes in recent months to the protection policies now available to you as a dental hygienist and therapist:

  • Dentist Provident Society have opened up their dental-specific income protection policies to now all dental professionals, including BSDHT members. They’ve also added benefits such as career break options and guaranteed premiums.
  • A number of other providers have made changes to their policies to expand the number of injuries and illnesses they cover. This means you have more choice and better protection.
