The Dentists Insurance Company (TDIC), Northwest Dentists Insurance Company (NORDIC), and Dentists Benefits Insurance Company (DBIC) have appointed Bob Spinelli president and chief executive officer. Most recently, he was president and chief executive officer of the Dentists Supply Company (TDSC), a subsidiary of the California Dental Association (CDA), and chief financial officer of the CDA.

“While serving as CDA’s chief financial officer, Bob’s conservative fiscal management and strategic investment philosophy were instrumental in ensuring TDIC’s financial stability even during economic downturns. As CEO of TDSC, his innovation focus and service commitment ensured the company’s successful launch. He will bring this full suite of leadership strength to TDIC in this next phase of its growth,” said TDIC board chair Daniel Davidson, DMD.

Focused solely on protecting dentists, TDIC provides insurance products including professional and dental business liability, commercial property, and workers’ compensation, according to the company. Also, TDIC is celebrating its 24th consecutive year of earning the AM Best Company’s A rating, which includes comparisons to peers and industry standards as well as assessments of operating plans, philosophy, and management.

“In addition to serving our current policyholders, I’m excited to lead TDIC, NORDIC, and DBIC’s expansion strategy,” said Spinelli. “Our successful efforts to achieve geographic diversification, financial stability, and diversified premium base support our commitment to protect more than 23,000 policyholders in 15 states.”
