We discuss some extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics that naturally generate small neutrino masses and provide a dark matter candidate. The symmetry that stabilizes the dark matter suppresses neutrino masses to appear first at higher order in perturbation theory (e.g. 2 or 3-loops). Without the need of very heavy new fields or right-handed neutrinos. In the talk we will discuss the impact of this approach on neutrinoless double beta decay experiments, neutrino mass matrix texture, flavor mixing angles and dark matter signal.
