An adverse incident is an event or circumstance that might give rise to a claim, complaint or allegation against you. With claims-made protection, you are required to report an adverse incident to Dental Protection as soon as reasonably practicable after it occurs (or when you become aware that it has occurred).

In order to make an adverse incident report, please complete all the requested details below.


If an incident takes place and you are unsure whether it is likely to give rise to a claim, you should notify us of the incident by completing this form. If a claim is made against you as an individual complete as many details as possible, and provide us with any associated documentation that you feel we should be aware of.

If reporting on behalf of a corporate member, please ensure you’re authorised to do so as we cannot accept reports from unauthorised contacts.

If a claim arises and you have not notified us of the adverse incident you will not be able to seek assistance.

If you need any help completing this form, please contact our dentolegal team for guidance on 0800 561 1010.
