Ownership Provides Control and Peace of Mind
Participation in The Dentist Program for Washington and Oregon dentists requires ownership by each dentist covered under the policy. Ownership is achieved through a one-time purchase of common stock. The common stock purchase is a nominal amount and the purchase price is fully refundable in the event coverage is terminated or cancelled.
Joining WHI or OHI means becoming an owner of an established risk retention group, allowing for certain elements of control:
- An Underwriting Committee with the authority and ability to “vet” dentists before allowing coverage under the policy.
- A Claims Committee to perform root cause analysis, share lessons learned and support dentists with the resolution of claims.
