Best Dental Insurance

Chase Templeton was named as Best Dental Benefits Intermediary at the prestigious Health Insurance Awards 2017.

The Darwen-headquartered private medical insurance (PMI) specialist was awarded the title by a panel of independent experts.

The company’s commercial director Richard Holden accepted the award at a glitzy ceremony hosted by comedian and actor Omid Djalili at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.

The Dental category was one of six for which Chase Templeton had been shortlisted in the annual awards.


The company received the highest number of finalist placings in recognition of its work in the health cash plan, individual, group and international PMI sectors. It was also shortlisted for the Intermediary Innovation Award.

It is the second time that Health Insurance Awards have recognised Chase Templeton’s expertise in the private dental insurance field. In 2011

A delighted Mr Holden commented: “Once again the expertise, ingenuity and diligence which our advisers consistently provide has been acknowledged by our industry peers. This is the latest in a long line of awards bestowed upon Chase Templeton which recognise our dedication to consistently delivering best value and service excellence.”

Success at this year’s Health Insurance awards follows Chase Templeton being named Best Group International PMI Intermediary at last year’s event. The broker was also awarded the Best Group PMI Intermediary title at the 2014 awards.


It comes as the company continues to benefit from significant acquisitive and organic growth.


A successful buy-and-build strategy has seen it complete no fewer than 75 acquisitions in the past four years. This has been complemented by a surge in new business and improved retention rates fuelled by investment in internal sales and marketing functions.


Since 2013 the company has more than doubled its workforce and now employs over 120 staff at its Darwen HQ and office in Bridgwater, Somerset. They serve in excess of 30,000 clients and administer policies with an annual premium value in excess of £150m.


Following its acquisition earlier this year the company is now part of the newly formed Ardonagh Group, the UK’s largest independent insurance broker.
