Indemnity and clinical representation

Advice on the appropriate indemnity cover and clinical representation in the dental practice.


Suitable professional indemnity is a legal requirement for all registered healthcare professionals, including dentists. The GDC requires you to confirm that you have appropriate cover: NHS indemnity, professional indemnity insurance, or membership of a dental defence body.

Our professional indemnity for employed dentists extends the clinical negligence cover provided by the crown to support you in many other ways.
