Smile saver

Negligence allegations against you or your practice mean expensive, time-consuming claims. Get a treatment wrong and the legal bills and compensation you’ll have to pay could easily wipe the smile off your face.

You need insurance for dentists with added bite: protection for everything from your equipment to your treatments; from your people to your reputation.

Get insurance for dentists from us and – we promise – it won’t hurt a bit.

What insurance do dentists need?

Although individual treatments vary, the risks are more or less the same. Dentists, hygienists, dental technicians, orthodontists and so on all need the same kind of protection, whether self-employed or a practice owner.

Unhappy patients will claim injuries, wrong diagnosis, inadequate care, or anything else they feel has gone wrong, as your fault. This means allegations of professional negligence and dental malpractice against you. If that sounds serious, it is. It’s also stressful, time-consuming and very expensive.

Dentists’ indemnity insurance covers the legal costs to defend you and, if it comes to it, the damages you have to pay. Other than providing the right info to your insurer, you don’t have to get involved. Painless, even if your patient doesn’t agree.

Aside from that, you’ll need contents and equipment insurance. You can’t do much without what you use and having to replace it all in one go following, say, a fire will cost a fortune.

Visitors to your practice should be protected by public liability insurance. This means injuries and damages caused by slips and trips won’t come back to bite you.

Any customer data stored electronically is vulnerable to cyber criminals. The consequences of a cyber-attack are a tangled mess of GDPR regulations, IT security, PR fire-fighting and personal data recovery. Cyber insurance can’t stop an attack but it pays to fix the fallout from one, getting your practice back on its feet quickly.

If you have any employees, they’re protected by employers’ liability insurance. It’s a legal requirement for any UK business with staff, even if that’s just one other person and regardless of whether they’re part-time or full-time, temporary or permanent, paid or unpaid.
