Today Art talks with his long-time friend and colleague Rich Walton, who has worked with over 1,500 dentists helping them obtain proper malpractice, workers compensation, office liability, and other types of insurance. Rich discusses the difference between a claims-made policy and an occurrence policy, why it is important to read the policy, what to do if a patient is unhappy and threatening to sue, and what to do if a lawsuit is filed. Rich and Art also discuss mistakes dentists make in purchasing different types of insurance and why it is important to buy insurance from someone who knows your profession. Finally, Rich provides information about employee liability insurance, which covers discrimination and harassment exposure. This very informative episode is important for every dentist in practice to discover what is in their respective insurance policies and how it affects them.
