Malpractice insurance (also known as professional liability insurance) protects dentists by providing them with legal and financial security in the event they are named in a lawsuit. It compensates for damages, loss or injury suffered by the patient, as well as legal defense costs.
Even in cases where the lawsuit is proven frivolous, thousands of dollars may be spent in defense of the provider. It's not a question of whether or not you need malpractice insurance. It's a matter of selecting the best dental malpractice insurance carrier and plan for you and your practice.
