lawyer presenting claims defense

On average, a dentist has a claim filed against them at least once in their career. It is without a doubt, extremely important to select a malpractice insurance company that knows dental claims. The EDIC Claims Team has extensive malpractice liability experience. Compared to other malpractice carriers that handle both medical and dental claims, at EDIC, we only insure dentists. EDIC encourages our dentist members to call our Claims and Risk Management team at any time if you have questions or concerns related to:

  • Difficult patient-encounter 
  • Patient recordkeeping 
  • Request for release of medical records 
  • Request for a refund from a patient
  • Receipt of letter from a patient or attorney expressing dissatisfaction with treatment
  • Subpoena, lawsuit, or a demand for damages
  • Receipt of a Board of Registration notification

 

EDIC will always be your best advocate. Our claims specialists, legal teams, and expert witnesses will partner with you to defend you, your license, and your reputation.
