We offer reduced subscriptions to all dentists within the first five years of graduation.

These subscriptions are only for dentists in their second year of practice working in Scotland. 

Standard subscriptions exclude dental supplements - for example, procedures like dental cosmetic work and placement or restoration of implants. However, we do offer facial aesthetic indemnity, at no extra costs for many members. Find out more.
