Client Testimonials

I have been with the Dentist’s and General Mutual Benefit  Society for over 20 years.  Over that time I have needed their services multiple times.  Kevin Yarnold has always been available and diligent in processing any claim as quickly as possible.  
Every contact made with the Society has resulted in me receiving the upmost care and outstanding professional service.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin or any member of the D&G team.


I would like to take the opportunity to state that I am a massive fan of D&G and regularly advise colleagues to consider you. Having the security you provide has always been great relief to me over the years especially as for many of those years I was a single mum with only my income to rely on. I hurt myself earlier this year and Kevin Yarold during COVID was my point of contact and I could not praise him enough for his quick response and attention.

Thank you for always being there and helping me out this year especially. 


I broke my left humerus and had to take the best part of 6 months off work. I was very relieved that I had the Day 1 cover in place and I was paid from the very first day I couldn’t go to work until I returned fully six months later. The claims process itself was easy and Deirdre from Omega and Kevin in dg were extremely helpful. I found I could be honest with them and they would take my word for my progress, no need for medical reports and examinations. I was very glad I had the cover in place as I was able to pay all of my bills while I couldn’t work. I would highly recommend it to any self-employed professional Vet.
