Whether you're an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, general dentist or dentist in training, you can find a MIPS membership category to suit your practice. If you are like many Australian dentists, you may be working in a small practice, which you may part own, or be working in a larger practice or hospital. You can find a MIPS membership category to cover your area of practice and amend the basis for full private practice, both private and employer indemnified practice or full employer indemnified practice.

MIPS provides cover for several thousand of Australia’s 17,000 dentists and provides highly competitive rates.

If you graduated in the last five years, you may be eligible for a recent dental graduate basis for your membership which may attract a lower membership fee.

You have a choice

Many dental professionals choose to join MIPS and still keep their membership with the ADA or DHAA. You can opt out of paying indemnity with other organisations and just have your indemnity through MIPS – this way you don’t pay twice for indemnity cover.

Do you own your own practice?

If so, you may consider whether the MIPS practice entity insurance cover would cover your practice. This added protection provides liability cover for your practice and your practice staff, such as dental assistants and receptionists. It is provided at no additional cost and you do not need to apply for cover separately.

247 education

Once you are outside of the hospital system, accumulating your CPD points becomes more difficult, which is one of the reasons why MIPS offer risk education.
