Excellence in Protection

Sentinel is innovative risk management and employee benefits solutions. EDIC is exceptional malpractice coverage. Our partnership is setting new standards for strategy, service, and value. Together, we are the industry leaders that North Carolina dentists trust—more than 1,300, in fact.

Since 1992, EDIC has been committed to providing their dental colleagues with the protection they deserve and the risk management education they need to excel in their dental careers.

As a mutual-based company founded and governed by dentists, EDIC is owned by their dental policyholders and remain steadfast in its commitment to the field of dentistry as well as their dental institutions and students.


Dentists often tell us they went into practice to serve patients, not to manage people, yet the latter draws a surprising amount of their time, resources, and attention.

Sentinel is excited to announce a new, free service for our dentists and dental practices—a human resources hotline staffed by HR|Experts, a local organization that has over 55 years of experience counseling employers by phone on HR and employment-related matters.
