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.

We have created a streamlined process which will enable us to compare dental professional indemnity from up to 5 of the UK’s leading malpractice insurers. One of our dedicated malpractice advisors will take complete ownership of your case and work with you so that we can build a clear picture of your expertise and procedures undertaken to our insurer partners – generally this can all be completed electronically.
We will also require a “letter of good standing” from your current provider / union which serves as a record of your claims history. We will then engage face-to-face discussions on your behalf to obtain the best possible terms, before reverting to you with our recommendations.
