Why do dentists need insurance?

Even in the safest dentist office, a patient could trip getting out of a chair and file a lawsuit. Insurance for dentists shields your small practice from the legal and financial repercussions of everyday accidents. You may also need insurance to comply with state laws or the terms of a lease.
