Why do dentists need dental malpractice insurance?

Dental malpractice can occur if a dentist provides negligent or faulty services or fails to properly diagnose or promptly treat a condition which causes harm to the patient. The types of dental malpractice claims include the unnecessary extraction of teeth, the extraction of wrong tooth, the failure to detect oral disease, the complication stemming from negligent work, the performance of a procedure for which the dentist is not qualified, and nerve injury.

Dentists and other dental professionals face significant exposure to malpractice claims. Once a claim is reported, it can take years before it is resolved. Litigation is usually costly and awards can be significant. Dental malpractice insurance brings peace of mind to dentists by knowing that if a lawsuit is brought against them, they will be protected by their insurance company.

What coverage does a dental malpractice insurance policy provide?

A dental malpractice insurance policy can be written on a claims made or occurrence basis. The typical policy provides coverage for damages and defense in connection with covered claims. The services covered by dental malpractice insurance generally include treatment, diagnosis, and the rendering of opinions or advice.

A claims made policy typically provides coverage for claims which are reported to the insurance company during the policy period and which result from incidents which took place on or after the retroactive date.

An occurrence policy typically provides coverage for claims which result from incidents which took place during the policy period, regardless as to when the claim is reported to the insurance company.

As every dental malpractice insurance policy is different, it is important for dentists to review the policy exclusions and the additional coverages offered before selecting a policy.
