Expertise, Advocacy, Understanding and Advice.

As dental professionals, we are constantly faced with challenges in practice and the workplace. Often when you look for advice or help, you have to turn to those who do not understand the nature of dental practice.

Often claims against dentists arising from negligence are covered by compulsory indemnity insurance, but each insurer is different and some claims and legal issues you face may not be matters that your insurer or association can assist you with. On those occasions, you need specific expert advice. When it comes to AHPRA matters, insurers are often not able to help in a timely way and sometimes advisers can be conflicted.
