Dental Malpractice Insurance Coverage
As an organization founded and led by doctors, we are closely aligned with all medical and dental professions. We work with our members to deliver affordable coverage solutions that protect your name, your livelihood, and your reputation. We are your most powerful ally and we will never settle a claim without your consent, where permitted by law.
With 79,000 members nationwide, we are committed to supporting the practice of good dentistry with national resources and local clout.
We provide our members with unique features—including MediGuard®, CyberGuard®, and the Tribute® Plan, our breakthrough financial benefit—that strengthen the practice of medicine while making it more rewarding.
Unsurpassed coverage options—We offer coverage for dental assistants and hygienists at no additional cost, and coverage is available for all dental specialties.
Premium discounts—Available for part-time practitioners and those new to practice.
Patient safety and risk management—Our commitment extends to delivering the support you need to maximize patient care, including complimentary CME and CE opportunities, online resources, and a 24/7 member hotline.
Free tail coverage—For members who have been insured by The Doctors Company for one year, we offer free tail coverage upon retirement from the practice of dentistry or in the event of disability or death.
MediGuard—We automatically provide MediGuard coverage as part of our dental malpractice policy. This important coverage provides you with legal representation for administrative actions brought by Medicare/Medicaid, dental licensing boards, credentialing reviews and actions, professional review organizations, federal agencies regarding EMTALA, and the DEA.
CyberGuard—Privacy and data security exposure is the fastest growing threat to your dental practice. As a member, you receive cyber liability protection as part of your core coverage. CyberGuard protects you against claims arising from the theft, loss, or accidental transmission of electronic patient information, as well as regulatory fines and penalties, and the cost of data recovery. Higher limits are available.
