Meridian has a significant dentistry client base – we are the principal legal advisers to the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and branch members. Our familiarity with the risks dental practitioners face enables us to provide high quality risk management advice and legal support when clients most need it.
Dental practitioners, including dentists, dental prosthetists, dental hygienists and oral health therapists, benefit from dealing with a legal team that cares and understands the distressing impact that claims of misconduct or negligence can have on them and their staff.
Our team provides support throughout the legal process with strategies to minimise reputational risk and disruptions to work.
We act for all dental practitioners in responding to complaints lodged with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and assist in responding to litigation and demands for compensation.
