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 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 350 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.
The Dental Trust™ is intended to provide support to its members. The Dental Trust is NOT an insurance program.
