Dental Negligence

Like any other medical expert, NHS and private dentists owe a duty of care to all of their patients. Unfortunately, sometimes dentists make mistakes which can lead to prolonged pain and discomfort. As a result of negligent treatment, further dental procedures may be required which can be both painful and costly.

A claim for dental negligence can be made for any mistakes or accidents by the dental professional that cause you to suffer physical injury. Common examples of dental negligence include:

  • Nerve injury
  • Cosmetic dentistry problems
  • Restorative dentistry errors
  • Dental procedures not performed properly
  • Mistakes in treatment leading to the loss or damage of teeth
  • Delay or incorrect diagnosis of oral conditions

If you have received substandard dental  care, you may be entitled to claim for the pain and suffering you have endured, as well as any other losses that you have incurred as a result of your injuries. This can include loss of income, cost of remedial treatment and other medical fees.

Our clinical negligence team has experience in dealing with dental claims and is committed to achieving justice for each and every client.

One of our claims involved our client having dental implants fitted by her dentist.  These were inappropriate due to our clients underlying periodontal disease, leaving our client in pain, and constant infections over a number of years.  We recovered £15,000 for our client.

Another client's dentist failed to provide root treatment and treat her tooth grinder prior to installing crowns leading to her teeth moving.  She was awarded £20,000
