When life delivers the unexpected and things get tough, we’ve been here for over 135 years to assist you financially and to help you regain control. Please note: our remit is to support dental students, dentists, and their families with personal aid (i.e not business-related costs and expenditure) and we do not assist other dental registrants or members of the dental team.
Update March 2020: We have seen an unprecedented increase in applications due to coronavirus so please bear with us whilst we process the requests.
Update March 2020 v2: If you are an NHS dentist and worried about your income due to coronavirus, you may find the following guidance from NHS England & NHS Improvement useful.
