dli01Dental liability insurance is a type of policy that protects dentists, maxillofacial surgeons, and oral surgeons from financial costs, fees, and charges due to malpractice claims, lawsuits, etc. Dentists are liable for any mistakes or problems that occur with a patient, even though it is not intentional. Patients can sue dentists, whether they are innocent or not. Dental liability insurance helps keep the dental professional in business by providing payments to compensate for payouts to lawyers, court fees, claim settling, judgements, etc.
