SDA members enjoy special subscription rates for professional indemnity by the Dental Protection Limited (DPL) which is a division of Medical Protection Society (MPS). Dental Protection is the acknowledged international leader in dental risk management.

The table below lists the subscription grades.
For the Year 2017 subscription rates, please contact us via email at membership@sda.org.sg

Scheme Rate: These discounted rates apply only to SDA members who keep their membership of the Singapore Dental Association (SDA) throughout the subscription year, and who pay their indemnity subscriptions through the SDA.

Direct Rate: For comparison, dentists/therapists/hygienists who join Dental Protection/MPS directly, without becoming members of the Singapore Dental Association, pay higher rates.
