Allied Wessex has a range of niche professional indemnity policies to suit the risks faced by dentists. The policy provides cover against allegations or claims of professional negligence, paying for both the legal costs and compensation payments up to the cover limit. It can even be extended to protect against malpractice claims related to specific aesthetic procedures such as botox and dermal fillers.
The prospect of a claim or allegation of negligence is one of the most stressful and daunting situations a dentist can face, and our increasingly litigious society makes the possibility of a claim occurring even more likely.
Common types of claims against dentists include:
- Diagnostic failures
- Injury during treatment
- Drug usage errors
Having professional indemnity protection in place will ease anxiety for dentists and will give the reassurance that they are properly protected.
