Temporary Dental Facilities

Temporary dental facilities and services provided by CNA HealthPro and Professional Protector Plan® for dentists may help restore dental offices within 30 days following a disaster.

Every year, dental facilities experience natural disasters or manmade catastrophes that render them unable to provide services to patients. The Temporary Dental Services Program, provided through CNA HealthPro and the Professional Protection Plan® (PPP) for Dentists, assists dental offices in restoring and reopening for business within approximately 30 days following an incident.

Once an incident is reported, CNA begins the process of quickly restoring dental office operations. This process includes:

  •     Immediate search to confirm the location of a temporary facility;
  •     Modifications to the temporary location implemented on an expedited basis;
  •     Provisions for temporary usage of all dental equipment;
  •     Full-service dental facility operational within approximately 30 days of securing the lease; and
  •     Inventory of all damaged equipment and records, including an assessment and evaluation.


“In most cases, a disaster does not eliminate the patient’s need for dental attention or pre-arranged dental services. We are pleased to offer the Temporary Dental Services Program that minimizes the interruption of services for dentists and enables them to continue to put smiles on the faces of their clients,” said D. Todd Klingaman, Director – Large Loss Property, CNA.
