In the Winter of 2015 we realized dentistry is an under served market. Often times a dentists Malpractice or Professional Liability is not reviewed annually. It is not uncommon to see a dental practice be grossly under insured for their equipment, tools, and technology. In the event of a significant fire, tornado, or water loss, we believe more than 80% of dental practices would not be insured for full replacement.
We have realized financial planners and dental sales reps give dentists a lot attention, but in terms of business insurance, benefits, and their personal home, auto, toy, umbrella, insurance there is no one stop solution for dentistry. After much discussion and research with local dentists and a dental CPA expert, we realized there is a great opportunity to serve. What we've learned is many dentists don't understand the potential exposures facing their business (wrongful termination lawsuits, sexual harassment claims, patient information breach, fiduciary negligence, etc), many are under insured, some don't understand how to protect their personal assets vs their business assets.
It's not uncommon for a dentist to have as many as 5 or 6 insurance agents for home, auto, life insurance, disability insurance, health, malpractice/professional insurance, and workers comp - not to mention they don't meet regularly to review changes, new needs and exposures, and get recommendations on how to protect themselves and their patients. That is way too many people involved in something needing focus, expertise, and alignment.
