Northwest Dentists Insurance Company


Welcome to the Northwest Dentists Insurance Company (NORDIC).  We are the trusted provider of insurance solutions to dentists throughout Washington and Idaho.

NORDIC is dedicated to protecting dentists and their practices. Founded in 1989, NORDIC has a proud heritage of providing dentist-focused insurance products, risk management  solutions, personalized service and expert claims handling. We offer a comprehensive suite of coverage options, including professional liability and businessowners policy.

In 2017, NORDIC joined The Dentists Insurance Company family. NORDIC and TDIC share a legacy of protecting only dentists and are working together to secure the future of dentist-focused insurance in Washington. Founded by a small group of California Dental Association members in 1980, TDIC has grown to protect more than 19,000 dentists with a stellar rating, solid reputation and sound financial resources to handle claims.

As of 2018, A.M. Best affirmed TDIC’s A rating, upgraded NORDIC’s Financial Strength rating to B++ (Good) from B (Fair) and increased NORDIC’s credit rating outlook to Stable.

NORDIC is endorsed by the Washington State Dental Association, the Idaho State Dental Association, Seattle King County Dental Society and the Washington Academy of General Dentistry. The Washington Dentists’ Insurance Agency (WDIA), a wholly-owned subsidiary of WSDA, promotes our products in Washington, and the Idaho Dentists Insurance Agency, owned by ISDA, represents NORDIC in Idaho.
