Professional Liability (Malpractice)
PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY [Malpractice]: Protects and represents you for the treatment you are providing to your patients if a malpractice claim is filed against you. Risk managers are available to assist you with any patient care situations or risk management issues that may help you avoid a lawsuit. When it comes to medical malpractice insurance, you have two coverage types: Claims-Made or Occurrence.
ENTITY MALPRACTICE [Corporation, LLC, Partnership]: Protects your entity for the vicarious liability of your affiliated dentists. For example, “Tooth Dr LLC” may be named in a lawsuit for malpractice along with Dr. John Tooth and the associate Dr. Jane Dentures. There are two ways to protect your entity: shared or separate limits, depending on practice set up.
