What We Do

Ways We Help:

  • Supplement Income
  • Protect the family home (mortgage etc.)
  • Educate dependents
  • Health Insurance / Nursing Home / Convalescent Care
  • Insurance Premia
  • Once off expenses (Christmas etc.)

How are we funded?

We are funded mainly through annual contributions by Standing Order from individual dentists. We also receive occasional bequests and once-off donations from individuals, Irish Dental Association Branches and various dental societies.

Whilst we are very grateful for the generosity of our colleagues, we are very conscious that only about 10% of dentists donate to our Society.

Our aim is to improve on this.

Our ability to help people is limited by our finite resources. These need to be maintained to ensure that we can continue to support colleagues in difficulty especially in these challenging times. We are particularly anxious that dentists who have qualified within the last 20 years become contributors to our Society. We are also asking existing donors, to whom we are so grateful, to review their contributions.
