Accurate valuations of your dental laboratory

Through our trusted partner CPA, we can offer free desktop indicative reviews as to whether the amount you have valued your dental lab at is adequate. Should this indication suggest over or underinsurance, we can help you to arrange a full, on-site valuation with a previously agreed price.

Dental laboratory insurance FAQs

We do not automatically cover your professional indemnity. However, we do offer professional indemnity insurance separately and can provide you the cover you require all during the same phone call and quote.

All of our customers have access to a 24 hour emergency helpline. This phone line is active should there be an emergency and an adviser can help you source professional trades people at short notice.

Yes. Should you lose the keys to your dental lab and need to replace locks, our policy provides loss of keys cover up to £3,500 to replace your locks. This is not only for if you lose your keys, but also if they are stolen from the laboratory itself, or from the home of any employee or owner authorised to hold the keys. However, please note that keys to any safe or strong room must never be left at the laboratory overnight.

To provide theft cover your insurer will require a minimum level of security on your premises. This will include, for example:

  • Five lever mortice deadlocks complying with British Standard 3621 on all final exit doors.
  • Key operated window locks to be fitted on all ground floor and accessible opening windows.

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your policy you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).
