Standard Features


Two hours free legal advice

Your policy now comes with two hours of free legal advice, for non-claims related matters related to your business, every year. Whether you need some advice on employment matters, lease arrangements or contracts, you can now seek initial advice from Meridian Lawyers at no cost.


Ability to practice overseas by arrangement

We have increased our territorial limitations to worldwide, excluding the USA and Canada. This means your policy can now respond to matters overseas, such as claims arising from good Samaritan acts that you may undertake overseas. It’s important to note that in most cases, we can only defend an action that is taken against you in an Australian  Court of Law.


Cover for overseas volunteering

Your policy now provides automatic cover for up to 60 days volunteering activities undertaken overseas, excluding the USA and Canada.


Good Samaritan counselling cover

Being at the right place at the wrong time can be a distressing experience. Your Guild policy now provides cover so you can seek counselling and support, at no cost in the aftermath of assisting in the aftermath of a traumatic event.


Cover for the use of botulinum toxin

Your Guild dentists liability policy covers you for the use of Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers when used as part of a dental treatment plan provided within the scope of practice as permitted by the DBA.


Broad cover for libel, slander and defamation

It could be as simple as a passing comment on previous treatment provided to a new patient, or a mistaken quote in a social media post. Your policy will respond to assist your defence should someone take action against you.


Broad inquiries cover

Broad cover for inquiries, specifically including private health fund and Medicare inquiries, in addition to AHPRA and DBA statutory inquiries.


Free pay by the month facility

Unlike many other insurers who may use a premium funding facility or charge an administration fee, switching to pay by the month costs you no more than paying annually with Guild Insurance. You can switch any time, or switch back to annual, whenever you need.


Defined procedures cover

Cover for GP dentists who perform orthodontics, or surgical implants. This cover can provide an additional layer of certainty when undertaking procedures that have a greater risk than the majority of dental procedures.


Free cover in retirement.

Automatic and guaranteed run-off cover in retirement, at no cost. This will protect you for any claims that arise from procedures undertaken prior to you ceasing practice.


Cover for treatment provided by others

Cover for your liability arising from the actions of employees, even without your direct supervision. This includes, sub-contractors, dental therapists and administration staff.
