ProMutual Group Announces Dividend for Massachusetts Dentists

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 26, 2008) - Medical Professional Mutual Insurance Company ("ProMutual"), the parent company of ProMutual Group, recently announced a dividend for qualified Massachusetts dentists. This year's dividend is the fifth consecutive year the company has issued a dividend to dentists.

"We are pleased to once again offer Massachusetts dental policyholders a dividend," said Gregg L. Hanson, senior vice president of underwriting for ProMutual Group. "We have a strong record of controlling costs and losses. Ultimately, the policyholders reap the benefits of those efforts."

Based on the results of the company's Massachusetts dental business for the years 1986 through 1999 as well as 2003 and 2004, ProMutual was able to pay a dividend to Massachusetts dentists who maintained an active policy during those years. The years 2000 through 2002 have not yet generated results that qualify them for the dividend. The amount of each dividend is based on the duration of the policy, the policy form and coverage limits selected as well as any endorsement activity.

"Our commitment to the dental industry in Massachusetts has remained unchanged," said Michael R. Kubik, vice president of marketing for ProMutual Group. "We look forward to building upon the relationships that have steadily developed over the past several years between our company and dentists."
