The Fifth District has properly vetted the following Professional Liability Insurance policy for members. We encourage you to take a look at the Fortress Insurance program. Over a thousand of your colleagues in Central and Western New York feel it is superior to the competition for the following reasons:
Stability and Commitment, Favored by Dentists Across the Country
- Fortress Insurance Company is an AM Best “A” (Excellent) rated professional liability carrier. Fortress, and their parent company OMSNIC, are the largest providers of dental malpractice in the country. Fortress Insurance Company is owned and operated by dentists, specializing in writing professional liability insurance exclusively for dentists.
- Fortress provides outstanding customer service and aggressive defense of claims for its policyholders. The Fortress policy provides free tail coverage, no settlement without your consent, a 99% claims handling satisfaction by policyholders and 94% favorable outcome on claims taken to trial.
District Claims Review
All claims are reviewed through committee allowing YOU to have a voice in the process. No liability insurance company should decide for you, or take the least expensive option, i.e., settling vs. defending. Your professional reputation depends on the efforts put into this process.
- Fortress has teamed up with Chubb Insurance Company to offer Group Personal Excess Liability Insurance (umbrella coverage), to all Fortress policyholders, at discounted premiums.
- Fortress & Hanover Insurance Companies have combined their expertise and capabilities to deliver Worker’s Compensation and Business Owners policies for dentists.
