Do you undertake surgical placement of dental implants?

Reading time:

If you are a dentist with general registration and undertake surgical placement of dental implants and are not indemnified by your employer for this practice, you require the ‘Dental implants extension’ endorsement. Refer to the Classification guide for more information.

Are your billings correct for non-employer indemnified (private) practice?

You are required to update your estimated annual gross private billings and or salary if your current details do not accurately reflect the level of cover required. If you also undertake practice where no billings are generated, you need to provide your salary for that practice (eg salary you receive for the supervision of other practitioners where those services are not employer indemnified). For more information, refer to the Classification guide

Do you undertake cosmetic services?

Most categories exclude cover for cosmetic practice including minor cosmetic procedures such as botulinum toxin injections, dermal fillers, and dermal resurfacing.  Refer to the Classification guide for more information. 

Retroactive cover date

You should ensure your retroactive cover date reflects your first date of practice in Australia or the date you first undertook any non-employer indemnified practice. There is no cover for healthcare provided prior to your retroactive cover date.
