Dental Staff

Solutions for hygienists, dental assistants, receptionists, and office managers, employed in a dental practice.

As a key member of the dental team, you are the backbone of the practice. Your tireless efforts ensure patients receive the care and service they expect. You’re also first on the scene when your colleagues need the tools and support to deliver that exceptional care. It can be easy to overlook your own wellbeing.

We can help you there.



Malpractice Insurance

Hygienists, certified dental assistants, dental nurses or dental therapists in any province or territory (other than Quebec) who are employed by an eligible dentist and need to purchase their own malpractice coverage, are eligible to apply for CDSPI’s Malpractice Insurance plan. The coverage offers up to $2-million per claim, to a maximum of $6-million per calendar year, with a low $500 deductible at a premium of $106.99. Ensure you have confirmed that the coverage terms and coverage limits of the CDSPI Malpractice policy meet any requirements as set by your governing regulatory body*. Apply online or give us a call from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm ET at 1.800.561.9401 to learn more.

*Please note this policy does not provide an Extended Reporting Period (tail coverage), for insureds who are employed as dental hygienists, certified dental assistants, dental nurses and dental therapists.
