What is dental negligence?
Dental malpractice, or dental negligence, can be defined as avoidable injury caused by a dentist who fails to take the proper care.
Types of Dental Negligence Claims
Dental negligence, may involve harm to the patient, whether through poorly performed procedures, incompetence, or failure to diagnose. This may involve severing a nerve, pulling the wrong tooth or failing to diagnose decay resulting in further problems.
Serious harm to a patient can be a feature of dental malpractice with some patients experiencing life changing injuries. A dentist may cause a serious infection due to unsafe practices, fail to diagnose a case of oral cancer, or improperly use dental tools resulting in permanent injury.
Your dentist is responsible for informing you of any of the risks involved with your treatment or proposed treatments as well as any side effects and risks to your health. If you are treated and not made fully aware of these risks beforehand and something goes wrong, you could have grounds for a compensation claim.
There are many aspects of dentistry where issues can arise;
Dentists owe their patients a duty of care. If you suffer pain or injury because of a lapse in providing this duty of care or if you have suffered unnecessary pain or loss as a result of a dentist breaching their professional duty, we may be able to help you make a dental negligence compensation claim[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]
