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.
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.
