Dental Practice Insurance in Charleston SC & Mt Pleasant SC

With nearly one million people employed and an industry revenue of over $125 billion in the United States, dentistry is a big business—but it's also a vulnerable one, because a single slip of the hand could cause damage that's not easily fixed. As a dentist, you're susceptible to issues like leaks of patient information, forgetting to properly update the patient's medical history, failing to adhere to standards of care when you're rushed, and failure to detect diseases when they first occur.

Dental practice insurance can help protect your practice from the high costs of malpractice suits and regulatory fines. In addition to the basic coverage that every dentist should have, consider the following and whether or not you might need extra coverage:

  • Do you substitute for other Dentists? Most policies only cover one dentist at one location. If you perform work outside your normal office, you'll need to be sure your policy covers you at that location.
  • Have you incorporated? Many dental practices incorporate after several years of operation, but don't realize they need to be insured using a corporate malpractice policy. If a lawsuit occurs, these practices often have no coverage when they thought they had enough, leaving them to pay all costs out of their own pocket.
  • Do you perform high risk procedures? Some elements of dentistry—such as implants—are considered riskier than normal operations and require correspondingly higher coverage.

Dental Equipment Coverage

Equipment is the heart of the modern dental industry—and we know how expensive your tools and diagnostic machines can be. Equipment coverage provides an added layer of protection in case the supplies you've purchased fail or do not live up to the claims of the manufacturer.

New products enter the market on a regular basis, so consider talking to one of our agents whenever you purchase something you haven't used before. We'll help perform a risk assessment and determine whether or not you need additional coverage before you start using the equipment on patients.

Commercial Property Insurance

Commercial property policies are one of the most important elements of dental practice insurance. Falling trees, fires, and water damage are all potential threats to the place you work, and any of these could quickly destroy tens of thousands of dollars in equipment. Whether you're facing a minor interruption or a major loss, making sure your property is insured is of critical importance to any business owner, so call McKenna Agency, Inc. today to discuss covering your dental practice.

Testimonials

My husband and I have been working with Wes for the last year. We met with several financial advisors before deciding on the McKenna Agency and definitely felt like we made the right choice after our first meeting. Wes “roots” for our financial goals while giving sound advice along the way. We have never felt more at peace financially (been married 6+years) and feel secure in our financial future. Wes has been a GREAT resource for us and we highly recommend him, his staff and agency.

I want to thank the McKenna Agency, Inc. and especially to Mr. Ell Brown for helping me with my insurance. As I was preparing to go there I felt as if I was going to my doctor for bad news, but to my surprise what at great experience meeting a young man with a wonderful smile to greet me. Mr. Brown discussed some options and prices of two of his products; he explained to me what I would need to do. We have both worked diligently preparing me to be a new member of the McKenna family. The slogan reads “Nationwide is on Your Side”, says it all. The pain is gone and I will continue to look forward to having a long-lasting relationship. Thank you again Nationwide and your wonderful Mr. Brown.
