As a Dental professional you need to be certain of the specific exclusions on your Professional Liability policy.Botox and Dermal Fillers are a "hot topic" amoungst Dentists and Insurance companies over the past few years. Some insurance companies have adapted to allow a minimal amount of procedures however, even more companies have opted to exclude any type procedures outside of the tyical scope of dentistry.All policies are not the same, be sure you know what your coverage offers!

  • Yes that is correct Dr. Stein. I write insurance in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont and as to date, only New Hampshire has passes a filing allowing all Dental professionals to use botox and dermal fillers, and most importantly, depending on the state you practice in, your malpractice insurance is not going to protect you unless you are an Oral surgeon.
  • After having received training in Botox and dermal fillers I was disappointed to find out from the MA. Dental Society that only educationally trained specialists in oral surgery are recognized by our state and able to acquire malpractice insurance.
  • Absolutely Dr. Feuerman! If anyone has any questions please let me know and I will gladly respond to concerns.
  • Lynn. Thanks for this information. Clearly, any dentist who is performing these procedures should check their insurance policies as well as their specific state licensing guidelines.
