Dental Practice Insurance

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 Noltensmeyer Insurance Services today to discuss covering your dental practice.

Our Providers

Testimonials

Our former provider rates went up dramatically when we added a teen driver so I called Noltensmeyer Insurance. Agent Natalie Bailey found us more coverage and better rates. The transition was quick & painless with outstanding customer service. This agency's knowledge and expertise gives us great peace of mind.

Missy Thomas has provided outstanding customer service for the 10+ years I have been with the agency. Her professionalism, insurance knowledge along with her vibrant personality make it a pleasure to do business with her/the agency. :)

I noticed that our insurance rates kept going up, so I decided to do some comparative shopping. We decided on Noltenmeyer Insurance Services for three reasons; 1) we saved a lot of money on our insurance package, 2) the customer service is excellent and 3) they have a high degree knowledge and expertise and we are confident that we are adequately protected. What sets Noltenmeyer apart from others is their customer service. They are kind, patient and I never feel like I am a bother to them.

I have been with this company for years! Mt agent, Missy T. gives the BEST service and I will go where ever she goes. I think this company is lucky to have her and she needs a raise and promotion to Manager of a branch. If she could teach others her people skills this company would grow even more, and that is without TV/Radio advertisement. It would be from GREAT people skills and the circle process to figure out how to assist the client to get what they need and you get paid for it. I recommend Missy T. and her services to all my employees, family and friends when they tell me they are not happy with their insurance agent/company.

Dan and his staff are helpful, caring experts who put my mind at ease regarding all of my insurance needs. I feel as though I am getting the best insurance coverage possible along with the best price available in the industry. The service and attention I have recieved over a number of years is unbeatable. I know, I tried another company to save a few bucks a few years ago and I am now back with Nationwide. The meager dollar savings couldn't make up for the loss of friendly, reliable service I get from everyone in Dan's office.

The Noltensmeyer Agency is about service. I have a wide array of insurance needs. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure all my needs are met. In today's world, I cannot afford to make a mistake with my coverages. I am confident that my needs have been coordinated to the best possible coverages available. I know that I could not receive this level of expertise with a discount house. I have been with Nationwide for ~ 15 years and plan to be for a long time to come.

I've been a customer for 13 years. Besides having to review some prices every once in a while, we've been very satisfied with Noltensmeyer Ins Serv LLC. Although I've never had to make a claim of any kind, I can count on their services for all my insurance needs. Keep up the good work...
