Dental Negligence Claims

None of us particularly looks forward to sitting in the dentist’s chair and we put our trust in the dentist to provide us with competent care. If the care we receive is not competent, the results can be extremely painful and unpleasant and the treatment which may be required to correct mistakes can be both prolonged and expensive. Dentists may be carrying out treatment under a private insurance scheme (such as “Denplan”), under a private agreement with the patient, or as part of his NHS practice. The most common types of dental negligence are:

  • Failure to detect and treat gum disease
  • Failure to offer root canal treatment instead of tooth extraction
  • Nerve damage
  • Errors in anaesthesia
  • Failure to diagnose oral cancers

Whatever the failure in care, we can help you claim for your injuries and pain and get you the medical and dental attention you need to recover from the injuries. We are expert lawyers with an understanding of how vital it is to get you the much needed help and compensation to which you are entitled.

Why Make A Claim?
If you have suffered injury as a result of dental negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation.

Supporting Your Needs
As we have said, dental injury is painful and unpleasant and can bring about the need for many kinds of assistance to allow you to regain your quality of life. This could involve obtaining the necessary restorative dental work to repair the damage which has been caused. In addition, you may have incurred expenses in travelling to receive restorative treatment and have lost time off work and a loss of earnings.
