In 1974, a group of Texas dentists realized the need for an organization to help protect the value of their practices in the event of a disability or death and established the DDR mail russian brides Dental Trust™.
The primary purpose of the DDR Dental Trust is to aid a disabled member in their time of need. In 1986, the DDR Dental Trust™ was endorsed by the Texas Dental Association. The DDR currently has over 300 members across Texas. The Dental Trust’s only source of operating funds has been solely through the dues of its members. Each member pays an initial enrollment fee of $1,500.00 and then pays $100.00 every year thereafter. The enrollment process has been primarily performed by one-on-one enrollment of non-member dentists, by the members themselves.
As a dentist in Texas you have built one of your most valuable assets, your dental practice. What would happen to this asset if you were unexpectedly disabled and prevented from working for several months or even permanently? Your asset would begin to immediately diminish in value. The DDR Dental Trust is a member organization of fellow dentists that is designed to help dentists protect the value of their practice.
The Dental Trust is designed to help run a dentist’s practice in the event of a disability, death or premature retirement. The members and the administrator actively work at maintaining a practice during temporary disability and also actively work to sell a practice after the dentist’s death or permanent disability. When a member dentist becomes disabled or dies, then the Dental Trust membership is called upon to aid the disabled member until the disabled dentist can return or the practice can be sold. The assisting members help with the continuation of the disabled member’s practice by treating their patients while absent from the practice.
All patient fees collected by the practice remain with the practice. DDR Members are NOT paid and serve the practice with the understanding that they too will be served in their time of need. The Dental Trust has been working to save member’s dental practices for over 30 years.
The Dental Trust™ is intended to provide support to its members. The Dental Trust is NOT an insurance program.
