Dental Practice Insurance

With nearly one million people employed and an industry revenue of over $125 billion in the United States, dentistry is a big business—but it's also a vulnerable one, because a single slip of the hand could cause damage that's not easily fixed. As a dentist, you're susceptible to issues like leaks of patient information, forgetting to properly update the patient's medical history, failing to adhere to standards of care when you're rushed, and failure to detect diseases when they first occur.

Dental practice insurance can help protect your practice from the high costs of malpractice suits and regulatory fines. In addition to the basic coverage that every dentist should have, consider the following and whether or not you might need extra coverage:

  • Do you substitute for other Dentists? Most policies only cover one dentist at one location. If you perform work outside your normal office, you'll need to be sure your policy covers you at that location.
  • Have you incorporated? Many dental practices incorporate after several years of operation, but don't realize they need to be insured using a corporate malpractice policy. If a lawsuit occurs, these practices often have no coverage when they thought they had enough, leaving them to pay all costs out of their own pocket.
  • Do you perform high risk procedures? Some elements of dentistry—such as implants—are considered riskier than normal operations and require correspondingly higher coverage.

Dental Equipment Coverage

Equipment is the heart of the modern dental industry—and we know how expensive your tools and diagnostic machines can be. Equipment coverage provides an added layer of protection in case the supplies you've purchased fail or do not live up to the claims of the manufacturer.

New products enter the market on a regular basis, so consider talking to one of our agents whenever you purchase something you haven't used before. We'll help perform a risk assessment and determine whether or not you need additional coverage before you start using the equipment on patients.

Commercial Property Insurance

Commercial property policies are one of the most important elements of dental practice insurance. Falling trees, fires, and water damage are all potential threats to the place you work, and any of these could quickly destroy tens of thousands of dollars in equipment. Whether you're facing a minor interruption or a major loss, making sure your property is insured is of critical importance to any business owner, so call The Falls Insurance Center, Inc. today to discuss covering your dental practice.

Testimonials

We have had a policy on our home, vehicles and our Recreational vehicles for almost 40 years with Falls Insurance. Our contact there, Christine, goes above and beyond for us. We have so appreciated the service we have been given, so when it was time to get our Medicare insurance, we contacted Falls Insurance. They were great. We met with Josh who explained all of the insurance benefits and even had costs for my meds. When I had a question he would immediately answer me with a phone call or email. I know most of the agents there and their service is excellent.

I first called Josh when I lived out of state and was contemplating moving to the Idaho Falls. He took the time to make us feel we would be welcomed to the area. We did indeed buy a home and he was even kind enough to check on the house while I was still 2500 miles away. He has helped us with all of our insurance needs and helped us navigate the Obamacare maze . He has saved us thousands of dollars per year with his knowledge and expertise of the insurance industry.
