Evidence of Insurance
Before beginning your new career, you will need professional liability coverage to practice dentistry in any capacity. This includes when you participate in working interviews or if you practice as a hygienist. TDIC offers new graduates a 30-day coverage binder for the time after you receive your state dental license, but before you begin to practice dentistry.
This special service provides temporary insurance coverage while you complete your formal application for organized dentistry and for TDIC Professional & Business Liability insurance.
Prior to attending your interviews, contact your TDIC broker to activate your 30-day binder. You only need one binder, so you just need to make one phone call.
Once bound, your coverage begins right away and the 30-day period is reflected in your policy statement. You must pay your binder premium within 30 days.
