Most dental staff employed by the NHS are insured for the duties in their contracts, but private dental practitioners are not, so you will need to get dental nurse indemnity insurance.
Dental nurse indemnity insurance offers:
- Cover against negligence claims made against you whilst working as a dental nurse
- Protection in the event that you are required to give evidence in a criminal or coroners court
Dental nurse indemnity also covers for defamation claims made against you in connection with your work.
