Abstract

Dental practitioners are at high risk of facing medical negligence cases because of the nature of the work and high costs involved in the treatment. Professional indemnity insurance protects the doctors from the medical negligence claims and legal liabilities and thus provides financial security. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the importance of professional indemnity insurance and to understand various terminologies in choosing the right policy.
