Dental Negligence

Dentists, like doctors and nurses, are required to meet a duty of care when treating their patients. If the treatment falls below the required standard, dental patients can suffer painful complications, multiple follow-up procedures and unnecessary emotional hardship.

Dental negligence claims can be made against dental professionals for failure to diagnose a dental condition and careless treatment, including:

  • Poorly fitted crowns
  • Improper fillings
  • Tooth/nerve damage
  • Extraction of the wrong tooth
  • Damage caused to jaw/mouth/tongue
  • Careless dental work
  • Misdiagnosis of dental problem
  • Unnecessary root canal work
  • Facial laceration and laceration of gums, requiring stitches
  • Mistakes during wisdom teeth removal
  • Orthodontist negligence (errors during orthodontic treatment, including careless fitting of braces and retainers)
  • Endodontist negligence (specialist root canal procedures)
  • Inadequate sterilization of dental instruments, leading to infection
  • Dental Hygienist Negligence
