Dental Injury Claims

Dental negligence arises where a dentist’s standard of care fell below that of a reasonably competent dentist and causing injury to the patient.

Dental practices have become more sophisticated over the last number of years and a number of sub specialities have emerged to include restorative dentistry, endodontics, prosthodontics, periodontology and sometimes referrals may be necessary to an oral or maxillofacial surgeon.

Where a patient has suffered from a dental error it can cause very serious physical and emotional distress.

Claims arising from dental negligence include:

– Unnecessary extractions
– Errors during administration of anesthetic
– Incorrectly placed implants or damage to
root during procedure
– Damage caused during root canal treatment
– Inadequate veneers
– Delay in diagnosis of gum disease or cancer
