The importance of Professional Liability insurance for dental hygienists and assistants

Making smiles bright and healthy is the name of your game. As a dental hygienist or assistant, you’re responsible for hands-on treatment of your patients and you’re also tasked with other important duties to assist your dental office in providing great service.

But sadly, malpractice lawsuits against dental hygienists and assistants are growing in numbers. From delayed detection of periodontal disease to an injury during a cleaning to failure to keep patient records current—a patient who feels wronged, rightfully or not, can be quick to sue.

Lockton Affinity Health’s Professional Liability insurance is tailored exclusively for dental hygienists and assistants. It covers defense costs and judgments or settlements that result from a claim against you, plus pays you for lost wages while defending a claim.

Why dental hygienists and assistants need personal coverage

The best protection against a malpractice claim is a dentistry liability insurance policy. While you may be covered through your dental office, that coverage may exclude coverage if a claimant solely names you, the hygienist or assistant, in a lawsuit. That’s a huge risk to take, and the reason why securing your own personal Professional Liability policy is your best defense.

This Professional Liability coverage is the smart choice for dental hygienists and assistants.
