Why do you need coverage?
As a dental hygienist, you work hard in your career and the care and treatment of your patients. A disciplinary action or malpractice lawsuit can have unforeseen consequences on both your career and financial future. While you may have professional liability insurance (malpractice insurance) through your employer, there may be limitations and you may not be fully protected. Having your own professional liability insurance, designed to put your interests first, is the best way to incorporate personal risk management. We offer coverage that provides you peace of mind to focus on your patients. Coverage is available for Dental Hygienists that are employed or self-employed.
