Are you familiar with the online resources available to MLMIC’s dentist policyholders? In addition to MLMIC’s unparalleled personal service, we aim to provide our insureds easy access to online resources, at your convenience, any time of day. Please take some time to visit us online and share your feedback.

Dentist Resource Page

Access our blog and other publications, tap into our risk management insights, and request an insurance document (e.g., certificate of insurance, claims history or declarations page) or obtain premium payment information on our Resources page. Additionally, our “Risk Management Tips” will provide important advice to help reduce the number and severity of claims.

Policyholders can also view a selection of the most commonly asked practice-related questions in our “Dental Malpractice FAQs,” including: (1) What exactly should be documented in the dental record? (2) Should my treatment plan be in writing? (3) How long must I retain dental records? Answers to these and some of the most frequently asked questions from our dental policyholders are now at your fingertips.

Should you need a certificate of insurance, claims history, or declarations page, you will find the necessary form request in “Resources.” If you do not have access to a scanner or fax machine, no problem. You can take a picture of the executed form with your mobile device and email the information to us. It is that simple.

Blog

We want to give our dental blog a special shout-out. It not only contains invaluable information on the COVID-19 crisis, but it also highlights a number of topics of interest to dentists pertaining to the practice of dentistry, including research articles, dental health issues, risk management advice and legal updates.

COVID-19

Over the course of this year, our Risk Management Consultants and legal counsel at Fager Amsler Keller & Schoppmann, LLP, have been dedicated to providing our policyholders with up-to-date COVID-19 information impacting our healthcare providers and will continue to do so for the duration of the pandemic. Be sure to check our COVID-19 resource page periodically for the latest guidance.
