The certificate coverage shall only cover the Policy Holder only. This can be covered with the existing DentProtect Protection Plan which is catering to practitioners for coverage.
However, Establishment Indemnity offers protection to cover establishments, clinics, firms, or incorporated bodies (LLP, Sdn Bhd, Bhd) against civil liabilities such as acts, errors, negligence, or omissions in the provision of Health Care Services by the Establishment covered. The Firm or Incorporated bodies (company) can still be held responsible for any negligence conducted in its premises regardless of Dental Practitioner or Locum doctor is an employee or not and regardless of whether the practitioner or locum doctor has their own individual Professional Indemnity. This is currently not yet offered widely in Malaysia.

Insurance protection is a crucial aspect of running a dental clinic and ensuring the well-being of dental practitioners.
