Dental Malpractice Insurance Information
All dentists are vulnerable to malpractice lawsuits. Having dental professional liability insurance can provide essential coverage in these circumstances. The agents at Mikel’s Insurance Services can help you secure the insurance you need. Contact us for additional information.
What Is Dental Professional Liability Insurance?
Dental professional liability insurance, or dental malpractice insurance, can provide coverage for claims of professional negligence, errors or omissions by paying the associated lawsuit’s expenses (e.g., defense costs, settlements and judgments). This can help reduce your out-of-pocket burden and provide peace of mind knowing you are covered.
Even with proper training and due diligence, dental professionals may be sued. While providing professional services, several scenarios could lead to a malpractice lawsuit, such as:
· Missed, delayed or incorrect diagnoses.
· Improper tooth extraction.
· Injuries or infections from oral surgery or dental procedures.
Additionally, coverage may be available for the actions of several individuals in a practice, including:
· Oral surgeons
· Dental assistants
Your policy should be tailored to your unique needs. Speak with your agent to discuss options, coverages, limits and exclusions.
Do Dentists Need Malpractice Insurance?
States have different laws regarding dental malpractice insurance requirements, and it may be necessary for licensure. However, even if it is not mandated, policies can provide essential coverage for you, your practice and your patients.
When Is Dental Professional Liability Coverage Effective?
Dental professional liability insurance may be written as either a claims-made or occurrence policy.
· Claims-made policy—This type may provide coverage if a claim is made during the policy period, and the incident that gave rise to the claim occurred after a specified date, known as a retroactive date.
· Occurrence policy—This type may provide coverage if the incident that gave rise to the claim occurred during the policy period. Coverage may still apply even if the resulting claim is filed after the policy is canceled or terminated.
Your agent can provide additional details about which type of policy best fits your practice. Reach out today for more information.
How Much Is Dental Professional Liability Insurance?
The cost of dental malpractice insurance varies. The amount of coverage selected, the size and location of your practice and your years of experience may impact premiums.
The team at Mikel’s Insurance Services can help you find the right policy at the best value. Contact us today for more information or a quote.
