In addition to making professional liability insurance available to dental practitioners through our carrier partnership, Dentist's Advantage is also a leading provider of risk management information.

Through the analysis of actual claims and data collected from our insureds, Dentist’s Advantage hopes this ground-breaking dental liability claim report and dentist work profile survey will provide dentists with the information necessary to help reduce their claim exposures while improving patient safety.
