Malpractice Insurance for Dental Professionals

What is Dental Malpractice Insurance?

Dental malpractice insurance, also known as dental liability insurance, is financial protection designed to cover judgements, settlements, along with legal expenses of dental professionals in the case of a malpractice lawsuit. In the event of a malpractice claim, whether the accusation is true or not, dental professionals could be expected to pay large amounts in judgement, settlement or legal fees. The best protection against a financially damaging lawsuit and high legal fees is medical malpractice insurance. As a dental professional, your employer’s group liability policy may prioritize their interests over yours. Owning your own individual dental insurance policy, IN YOUR OWN NAME, will protect you, your family and your career, as well as your hard-earned personal assets.

What Risks Do I Face That Warrants Dental Malpractice Insurance?

Dental professionals are responsible for the health of the teeth and gums of patients. There are many procedures that go into maintaining dental health such as cleanings, root canals, cavity fillings, and oral surgery. If an accident were to occur during any of these procedures, dental professionals could face malpractice claims. Whether the claims are ultimately true, or not, dental professionals could pay large expenses in legal or settlement fees. The best protection against harmful allegations is having a comprehensive dental malpractice insurance policy.
