What Types of Professional Liability Policies Are Available?

Please toggle open the selections below to learn more

Claims-Made Policy

A Claims-Made Policy provides coverage for claims that are first made against an insured dentist and reported to the company during the current policy period. The claim must have occurred on or after the retroactive date and on or prior to the termination date of the current policy.

Occurrence Policy

An Occurrence Policy provides coverage for a claim that occurs during the policy term, no matter when the claim is reported. Even if the dentist no longer has the policy in force, as long as the claim occurred when it was in force, the claim will be covered.

Moonlighting Policy

EDIC offers a moonlighting policy for those dentists who engage in clinical activities that exceed the parameters of their full-time professional liability policy with another carrier. Moonlighting policies are written on an occurrence basis only and allow for 10 (ten) hours a week chair-side.

Corporate Policy

Whether you are a sole proprietor or a legal owner of a multi-owned entity, EDIC has coverage options for your corporation and its associates.
