Dental students: The time to protect your future is now

Whenever I talk to ADA student members, I always stress the importance of enrolling in the no-cost ADA student members disability insurance as soon as possible. I’ve been working as an Insurance Plan Specialist for Great-West Financial long enough to know that having disability coverage while you’re in dental school is one of the most important ways you can help protect your future.
There are countless ways you could become disabled. Fall off your bike and break your leg. Slip on the ice and injure your back. A skiing accident could end your career as a dentist. You could also be diagnosed with an illness, such as cancer, that could force you to interrupt your education.

Why dental students need life insurance. Now.

As a Great-West Financial Insurance Plan Specialist, one of my most important responsibilities is helping ADA student members understand the importance of life insurance.

I understand — when your future is so full of promise, it’s hard to think about the possibility of dying. Yet, as someone who has worked with dentists of all ages, I can tell you, bad things do happen, even to dental students. I know some of you have experienced this firsthand.
