A trip to the dentist is enough to make most people feel uneasy, even when the majority of dental treatments go without a problem. Unfortunately for some, dental negligence does occur and mistakes can happen, leading to pain and unnecessary suffering.

We are experienced in dealing with all types of dental negligence claims:

  • Removing the wrong tooth;
  • Permanently injuring a nerve during surgery due to lack of concentration;
  • Allowing a patient to swallow an instrument;
  • Administering medication to which a patient is allergic (when the patient’s notes indicate the allergy clearly);
  • Providing defective crowns, bridges or other oral devices that cause costly and painful complications.

Do I have claim for dental negligence compensation?

A dentist’s failure to take action in response to a dental issue can also be grounds for a dental negligence claim. Such negligence can lead to a patient having ongoing problems, such as pain, deterioration in health and the need for long-term and expensive corrective treatment.

Some examples of dental negligence are:

  • Failure to detect oral cancer, periodontal disease, or other diseases

  • Failure to treat gum disease adequately or at all, allowing the disease to develop

  • Failure to inform a patient that a dental instrument has broken and been retained in the tooth cavity

How much will it cost to make a dental negligence claim?
