Insurance for dentists – why it matters
When you’ve worked hard to build up your practice, you need to know it’s protected. Insuring your specialist equipment is a key consideration, as well as covering your work premises for things like flooding and fires. Hiscox can tailor your business insurance package for the challenges that dentists face, so if anything goes wrong, you know you won’t have to deal with it alone.
Why dentists need insurance
Floods, fires and other damage
If your dental practice is damaged by flooding or affected by a fire you could be out of action for weeks. Likewise, if a key piece of specialist equipment breaks down, you could be looking at a hefty bill to get things up and running again. If you find yourself facing an unexpected expense, we’ll be there to help with the costs of repairs, replacements and loss of business revenue until you’re back on your feet.
Data in the wrong hands
Your job means you know your clients really well, you’re trusted with personal and confidential data and you treat it with the appropriate respect. But mistakes happen, even if you're not personally to blame. If data is accidentally shared with the wrong recipient, or deliberately targeted in a cyber attack, it could be expensive and not just financially – you could find your reputation at stake.
A problem with your key equipment
It goes without saying that your job requires specialist equipment, it’s not cheap and it’s not easy to replace, but you can’t do your job properly without it. If a key piece of equipment is out of action it’s not just a headache for you, it also risks wreaking havoc with your appointments diary and wasting other people’s time too. It’s essential that you get back up and running fast.
