AAWD and PPP are teaming up to commemorate Women’s History Month!  While some risks are worth taking, others are not.  During the month, we will highlight women known for taking distinct risks to lead the way in the field of dentistry, while also pointing out some risks that dentists shouldn’t take in their dental office.

A Risk Worth Taking!

Emeline Roberts Jones was the first woman to practice dentistry in the United States. The dental colleges of Jones’ time did not admit women, and her husband, a practicing dentist, agreed. In 1855 Jones eventually convinced her husband to let her join his dental practice as his dental assistant. At the 1893 World’s Columbian Dental Congress, Jones was nationally recognized as the first woman dentist.  Jones received numerous awards and honors throughout her six-decade career. She served on the Woman’s Advisory Council of the World’s Columbian Dental Conference in 1893; she was elected to the Connecticut State Dental Society in 1883; and she was made an honorary member of the National Dental Association in 1914.

While some risks are worth taking, others are not…

Insuring your dental practice with multiple companies can sometimes result in coverage gaps or overlaps.

Don’t get caught in the carrier tug-of-war trying to figure out which carrier will respond to your claim. The PPP is considered one of the first comprehensive insurance programs designed specifically for a dental practice. With the PPP, these gaps and overlaps are avoided with the complete PPP package. Dentists insured with the PPP have all the following coverages on one policy, with one effective date, and one premium: Professional Liability, General Liability, Property, Cyber Liability, and Employment Practices Liability. It’s the ultimate convenience and safeguard for the dental office!
