Dental malpractice insurance coverage is available on an individual basis as well for professional corporations, partnerships, and other group entities.
Most dental malpractice insurance companies require a majority of shareholders, partners, or employed practitioners to insure with the carrier to provide entity coverage.
Dental malpractice insurance premiums are based on practice specialty and procedures, county of practice, and practice hours.
Various dental malpractice insurance discounts may apply based on the date of completion of residency/fellowship and prior claims history. Depending on the company, coverage may be provided on an “Occurrence”, “Claims-made” or “Convertible Claims-made” policy form.
