There are an increasing number of dental claims being brought against practice owners (both principals and corporates) alleging vicarious liability for negligent care provided by dental professionals working on an employed or contracted basis.
In response to this we have introduced a claims made extension* to offer practice owners indemnity for this growing risk.
Indemnity extension for practice owners
With this indemnity extension added to membership, practice owners can request assistance with a claim for the clinical negligence of employed or contracted dental professionals working for you at the time of the incident. It covers payment of:
defence costs incurred in defending the position of a practice owner and securing the involvement of (or recovery from) the treating dentist or their indemnity providers.
damages and legal costs awarded against a practice owner in circumstances in which all efforts to secure the involvement of (or recovery from) the treating dentist have failed.
To get a quote for extended indemnity simply complete our short questionnaire.
Free indemnity extension with GROUPCARE
If you own a practice where all the dentists are DDU members (minimum two), you can get free extended indemnity* when you set up a GROUPCARE scheme. Find out more about GROUPCARE.
