The history of PPS is a dynamic story of how the vision of a few pioneering professionals laid the groundwork of what has become the largest multidisciplinary group of graduate professionals in the world.
A brainchild of a group of eight dentists, PPS was founded as the Professional Provident Society of South Africa on 8 July 1941, during the height of the Second World War. These founding fathers sought to find a better system of financial protection as a consequence of being unable to practice as a result of sickness or injury, looking towards the Dentists Provident Society of the UK, formed in 1908, for a model on which to base their own society – its objectives perfectly matching their own needs.
It is noteworthy to mention that despite all the changes that PPS has undergone over the intervening years, these objectives still today form the underlying rationale for the Group’s modus operandi.
