Pennsylvania Dentists Now Required to Have Liability Insurance

/ 26.Jul, 2012
Dental malpractice cases are not uncommon.  A new law in Pennsylvania, Act 65 of 2012 (S.B. 388) requires all dentists to carry professional liability insurance.  The law requires practicing dentists carry insurance of at least $1 million per claim.  Most dentists already have professional liability insurance, and the law, which goes in effect in August, should not be a significant change for most practices. -Josh J.T.
