Dental Assistant Malpractice Insurance

The essentials and benefits of having malpractice insurance coverage for dental assistants.

What is Dental Assistant Malpractice Insurance?

Malpractice insurance for dental assistants provides the necessary coverage in the case of a legal incident. Dental assistants perform a variety of patient care, office, or laboratory duties, and often work chair-side as dentists examine or treat patients. As a member of the dental team, dental assistants are just as likely as dentists to be involved in a medical malpractice claim brought on by patient accusation of negligence. The complexity of these malpractice cases suggest that dental assistants need to have an insurance policy that will cover unexpected legal fees for damages brought upon you personally. Dental assistant liability insurance grants you the freedom to focus on providing expert service and advice without worrying about a threat to your personal assets or livelihood.
