Dental Negligence Compensation claims– We’re Here To Help

Negligence occurs if you have received sub-standard treatment from a dentist. Dental Negligence has potentially occurred if:

  • You are repeatedly suffering with a dental problem and your dentists are engaging with minimal discussion and/or providing treatment that is ineffective.
  • You consider the treatment you received was provided without alternative options being discussed with you.
  • You were not informed of any risks.
  • Following your treatment your symptoms persist.
  • You left the dental surgery without a clear understanding of the cause of your symptoms.
  • You had a missed or false diagnosis which has led to a worsened condition.
  • You received careless dental work and/or poor standards of hygiene

All areas of dental treatment can encounter dental negligence, they include but are not limited to:

  • Oral Surgery, including extractions
  • Neglect and resulting dental decay
  • Crowns & Bridges
  • Root Canal Treatments
  • Gum Disease
  • Cosmetic Procedures including veneers
  • Orthodontic Treatment

Whilst most dental care is to a good standard the increasing pressure on practitioners, particularly NHS dentists, to see more patients can lead to mistakes causing unnecessary pain, suffering and expense.

Examples of the more common dental care errors includes:

  • Failed implants
  • Extracting the wrong tooth/teeth
  • Failing to manage and treat decay
  • Inadequate fillings
  • Inadequate crowns
  • Errors in root canal treatments
  • Failure to manage gum disease
