Professional Indemnity Insurance

ADAQ is the recognised voice of the dental profession in Queensland and for over 100 years has provided support and services to its Members.  The provision of ‘dental defence’ for Members was one of the founding objectives of the Association, and it has been a key focus in the delivery of services to Members ever since.  Professional Indemnity Insurance is not only mandatory for registration, but it is vital to protect Members when it is most needed. 

For the past 10 years, ADAQ has an ongoing agreement with QBE, one of the world's top 20 insurance companies, to underwrite ADAQ Members Professional Indemnity Insurance. Under the agreement with QBE, ADAQ provides all services to Members including advice, support, claims management and the engagement of lawyers when needed. This ADAQ in–house service is backed by a comprehensive QBE Professional Indemnity Policy that has been negotiated by ADAQ and has withstood all tests in providing protection against claims by patients, costs of official investigations and more. 

ADAQ in conjunction with Mediprotect and QBE Australia offers professional indemnity insurance to General Dentists, Specialists (other than oral and maxillofacial surgeons), Hygienists and Therapists. Under an agreement with QBE, all claims are managed by ADAQ by the CEO and confidentiality is assured. When it is necessary, ADAQ will engage the services of lawyers, currently DLA Piper, for legal assistance.  For further information, contact the ADAQ Membership Officer
