Dental Assisting Professional Liability Insurance

What is Professional Liability Insurance?

Professional liability insurance, also known as malpractice insurance or errors and omissions insurance, protects you against potential negligence claims made by your patients and employers. A PLI policy covers errors, omissions or negligent acts, which may arise from the normal or usual services you provide.

You must have your own PLI to practice dental assisting.
