Medical Protection Society

Young Dentist Acquisition Campaign


Medical Protection Society (MPS) is the world’s leading not-for-profit protection organisation for doctors, dentists and healthcare professionals. The organisation has been around for over 125 years with a highly renowned and well-established brand, protecting and supporting the professional interests of more than 300,000 members around the world.

As new less-established insurance players have entered the medical indemnity market, price has become one of the biggest factors to influence new medics to purchase indemnity. These younger, more fickle consumers are harder to influence and retain. MPS enlisted our help to devise a new comms strategy to reinforce their impressive values and product offering to young dentists.


  • Digital Strategy
  • Growth Strategy
  • Media Planning

Firstly, we researched the standout qualities of the Dental Protection product with a series of in-depth interviews across the business. This insight allowed us to identify many real advantages MPS held over the competition that could be repositioned to appeal to young dentists and members.

We developed a series of creative propositions aimed to push new boundaries of the key message, which was worked up into ad creative. Planning an integrated media campaign to launch this messaging to their audience across the market.

The research we conducted unearthed key elements that led to a shift in direction for the business and offered more value than simply great campaign creative. It provided clarity to the Dental Protection proposition and highlighted the strategic aspects to focus on for the next few years. Check out the creative and key strategic framework that we developed below.
