What is professional protection and why is it so important?
Once you have completed your dental studies, you’ll start putting into practice what you’ve learned throughout your years at dental school.
Professional protection, including indemnity insurance, can assist you with any dentolegal problems that might arise from your work as a dental practitioner throughout your whole career. This can include patient complaints, claims for compensation or complaints made to the AHPRA or HPCA.
Professional indemnity insurance is a compulsory part of registration for all dental practitioners and is there to protect you and your patients from financial or personal loss if something should go wrong. Without indemnity you could end up being asked to pay compensation, as well as any legal costs.
