Myth Buster Series: Are you covered? Malpractice Insurance vs. the Professional Legal Expenses Plan*
April is Oral Health Month. And this year, CDA OASIS is busting myths and tackling topics including pregnancy and dental health, what really erodes enamel, cyber security for dentists, social media, and more!
Misconception: CDSPI Malpractice Insurance will cover the costs to defend a complaint to your licensing body.
A malpractice lawsuit and a patient complaint made to your licensing body are two completely different matters that proceed in different ways. There are two distinct insurance plans that help cover the costs of these actions.
* CDSPI Malpractice Insurance and the Professional Legal Expenses Plan are underwritten by Aviva Insurance Company of Canada.
*CDSPI Malpractice Insurance is not available to dentists licensed only in Ontario or Quebec. CDSPI does offer Excess Malpractice coverage in Ontario.
