Dental Advisory Board Member
MPS is the world’s leading member-owned, not-for-profit protection organisation for doctors, dentists and healthcare professionals. Founded in 1892, we exist to protect and support the professional interests of more than 300,000 members around the world, helping them to understand and navigate the ongoing challenges of modern practice. Today we proudly support members in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, the Caribbean and Bermuda.
Our philosophy is to support safe practice in medicine and dentistry by helping to avert problems in the first place. We do this by promoting risk management through our workshops, e-learning, clinical risk assessments, publications, conferences, lectures and presentations. We also actively campaign for regulatory and legal reforms that benefit members and the wider healthcare professions.
We are seeking a Dentist to join our Dental Advisory Board to provide support to the Dental Protection team, ensuring that it continues to provide the expert advice and support that our members trust and value.
As a Dental Board member you are the voice of our members and are integral to our success; helping to deliver our Purpose and Vision. You will understand the complexities of working in the Dental profession and bring your specific expertise to the Board to ensure that the present and future dentolegal and regulatory challenges, which could affect the whole profession, are considered fully.
You will be required to demonstrate high levels of integrity and be able to role model outstanding standards of quality, probity and engagement with the profession. With the ability to listen and constructively challenge in a board environment, your commitment and engagement with your fellow Members and our Executive team will be critical to ensure delivery of high quality and dental-specific advice to MPS.
Medical Protection Society is committed to creating a Board that reflects the diversity of the members we serve. We welcome applications from Dentists who are members of Dental Protection and can articulate the views of our practicing Dentists, so that they can inform the future strategy of the Dental business.

Approximate annual commitment will be around 4 days a year for Dental Board meetings. Time will also be required to prepare for meetings and attend any professional development. Meetings are mainly held in central London and on occasion in our Leeds and Edinburgh offices.
