Dental Negligence Claims

Making a claim for dental negligence compensation

Have you recently received treatment from a dentist that has caused you additional pain or anguish? Do you feel that your dentist did not fully explain all the treatment options available for your particular diagnosis? Would you like to know if you have a right to compensation?

Understanding dental negligence

Healthy teeth are so important to all of us, not just for the practical purpose they fulfil but also the confidence provided by their cosmetic appeal.

However, an excellent set of teeth cannot be maintained without help and most of us, at some point in our lives, will need dental treatment.  We all place enormous trust in our dentist to carry out procedures and deliver treatments that will ensure our teeth return to or remain in great condition.

Although most dental practitioners strive to deliver the best possible treatment for their patients sometimes things can go wrong.  It may happen as a result of unavoidable complications, however, if you receive an injury or suffer problems due to negligence on the part of your dental practitioner you may be entitled to compensation. 

What constitutes dental negligence?

Many people are nervous of going for dental treatment before they even enter the surgery.  Receiving an injury or suffering complications as a result of treatment can therefore be very traumatic.  If something goes wrong and this is caused by the negligence of the dental practitioner we can help you to win the compensation you deserve.

Some examples of dental negligence include:

  • The dentist fails in his or her duty to ensure the client is made aware of all the procedural and treatment options available to treat their particular problem
  • Cosmetic procedures such as crowns or bridges which have been negligently carried out and lead to complications
  • Misdiagnosed or untreated gum disease
  • Inadequate root canal treatment
