WHY CHOOSE US
We are not a newcomer to your sector. We have 10+ years’ experience in providing insurance solutions to the Dental sector. NDI is an insurance advisory firm that can save you time, money and worry. Just like an accountant or lawyer who provides you with professional advice, based on years of training and experience, an NDI team member who is a well-qualified insurance adviser can do the same with your insurance.
Dental Insurance and insurance generally can be incredibly complicated to fully understand, and as your adviser, NDI can help you understand the details of an insurance policy and also work out what level of cover you need so that you are effectively protected.
Using NDI as your adviser often costs less because we have the knowledge of the current insurance market and the ability to negotiate competitive premiums on your behalf. In addition, because the NDI team deals with a wide range of insurance companies, we can access policies that are not available to most consumers who only deal directly with an insurance company.
If it so happens that you do have to make a claim, as your adviser, NDI will advocate on your behalf, liaising with the insurance company to negotiate the best possible outcome for you and your business.
So, whether it’s dental insurance, home, car, or other general insurances, Insurance Advisers are a trusted source of advice to ensure you are adequately protected
