Dental Malpractice/Negligence

Dental malpractice is when a dentist fails to properly diagnose or treat a dental condition that causes significant injury or death.

DENTAL MALPRACTICE CASES OCCUR FROM THE NEGLIGENT CONDUCT OF A DENTAL PROFESSIONAL, INCLUDING:

  • Failing to diagnose dental disease
  • Delaying disease diagnosis (i.e. oral cancer)
  • Causing cosmetic damage to teeth, lips, jaw or face
  • Making errors in surgical procedure
  • Piercing or cutting healthy tissue, resulting in nerve damage
  • Fracturing the tooth with dental instruments
  • Extracting healthy teeth
  • Using unsterile tools, leading to infection or blood poisoning
  • Failing to properly treat an oral health condition

Serious injuries such as these can result in large damages in the form of medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, disfigurement, future medical bills and a diminished quality of life.

Dental malpractice cases—as well as dental product liability claims—are often complex and require an experienced attorney to represent the facts of the injury and make the necessary links between the negligent act and the actual injury.
