What Is Dentists Professional Indemnity Insurance?
Dentists Professional Indemnity Insurance provides dental defence indemnity for professional negligence claims, or allegations of malpractice, received against a dental practitioner in the course of their professional duties.
Should a patient seek compensation for injury or illness as a result of the care you have provided a dental defence insurance policy will provide cover for defence costs and any compensation awards up to the limit of indemnity purchased.
I Run a Dental Practice, do I still Need Professional Indemnity / Malpractice Cover?
Whilst Dental Practitioners will often maintain their own individual defence insurance, we would still recommend that the Practice entity itself also consider a contingency policy for complete peace of mind. In circumstances where a dentist’s policy, or union membership, fails to respond to a claim, the Practice could find itself on the end of a significant compensation claim.
Professional Indemnity policies for Dental Practices will extend to cover all dentists employed or subcontracted by the firm as well as cover for Dental Nurses as required.
