What are other dentists saying about CDSPI?
I was pleasantly surprised at the level of customer service I received from CDSPI. They sent a refund cheque on my life insurance premium that I missed. They followed up with an email and phone call to make sure I received the refund, and reissued the cheque for me too.
Dr. Christine Hibberd
I just knew I could count on CDSPI. When I found out they were a not-for-profit, that clinched it for me. I also learned they sometimes reduce premiums when there are fewer claims. What other company would do that?!

CDSPI’s travel insurance is a great advantage for dentists. I’ve checked with other insurance companies and it’s a lot less costly for the same coverage. Then you add the level of service and it’s a really easy decision.

Retired Pediatric Dentist, Ontario
I’ve had insurance and investments with CDSPI since I started practising 42 years ago. The main thing I looked at was their low administration fee and the fact that they weren’t on commission, which is important to me. I always felt that they worked with my best interests at heart.

The “free insurance” [that CDSPI] provides is an obvious benefit, and the financial advice is especially important at a time when many are looking at massive student debt upon graduation. I support the Student Program, as CDSPI provides dependable insurance and investment advice to the dentists of tomorrow.

CDSPI has been helpful in supporting my local (HPDA) component society on several occasions with expert presentations with knowledgeable advice.
