Dentist's Advantage to offer HDA members professional liability insurance.

The Hispanic Dental Association has chosen Dentist's Advantage to be the exclusive corporate sponsor of professional liability insurance to HDA members.

"The HDA is very pleased to be working with Dentist's Advantage," said Linda Lenzini, executive director of the HDA. "With enhancements to their coverage, along with new risk management resources and competitive pricing, they are clearly a leader in the market."

Members of HDA, a national organization of dental professionals dedicated to promoting and improving the oral health of the Hispanic community and providing advocacy for Hispanic oral health professionals across the United States, benefit from:

* Enhanced protection: Dentist's Advantage improved upon one of the most comprehensive policies for dentists. Dentist's Advantage worked with AIG Healthcare, its new underwriting carrier, to improve the coverage. Enhancements include: a 10% risk management credit, a specialty liability package endorsement, which contains a sub-limit for billing errors and omissions exposures, and first aid limits have been increased to $10,000 per person!

* Pricing based on procedures performed: Practice-based pricing is a logical approach for developing the cost of insurance based on the procedures routinely performed and the complexity associated with those procedures. Dentist's Advantage is among thee first to introduce this concept.

* Risk management innovations: Clients benefit from a wealth of advice and knowledge. Through their relationship with the National Society of Dental Practitioners, clients have access to a 24-hour risk management hotline. The hotline is staffed by dentist attorneys and dentist risk managers to answer concerns. This provides early intervention and minimizes the risk of potential claims! In addition, clients can access an online library of documents and forms useful in day-to-day practice (e.g., consent, discharge, and record keeping forms (many of which are in Spanish), available online at

* Experience: For more than 50 years, Dentist's Advantage has been a leading providing of professional liability insurance for dentists. In fact, more than 25,000 dentists and dental groups trust Dentist's Advantage to meet their coverage needs. The service team is staffed by licensed professionals.

"We're excited to formally partner with HDA," stated Mark Buczko, vice president, Dentist's Advantage. Dentist's Advantage has a history of providing educational seminars to HDA members and affiliates through our National Society of Dental Practitioners [NSDP] risk management programs."
