As a dental specialist professional, you may think that you have less chances of being sued because you only specialize in a particular field. You may also feel that you have fewer chances of malpractice situations compared to regular dentists. In addition, you may think that you won’t become non-compliant to federal, state, or local regulations. You may even feel that you can simply settle a court action and be done with it without the need for insurance.Even if you don’t think the above things, you still need something to protect your financial success. It may not always be your fault, but you will have to face litigation, lawyer notices, court complaints, etc.
You might get sued from patients that misunderstood what they were getting, how they needed to get it, what the results will actually be, or several other common scenarios.
Regulations and rules change all the time and that means you have the potential to miss something new or misunderstand the new changes completely.
Costs can really add up and put your financial state in jeopardy.
