Risk Management

The PPP is a true insurance program that offers comprehensive insurance protection for the dental practice in addition to an array of risk management resources and services. The foundation of the PPP was based on the philosophy that our insureds should have access to the tools needed to proactively apply sound clinical practices in their office, such as obtaining written informed consent, conducting proper medical clearance prior to procedures as well as competent record keeping. We encourage all our insureds to become a “Proactive Practice”, one that is a step ahead and is focused on delivering positive patient and practice outcomes.
