Dentistry is a profession that requires Insurance cover against Negligence Claims & which is regulated by a Professional body that sets standards of care for all Dentists to meet.
Dental accidents can cause serious injuries, pain and suffering. Some dental accidents may also cause cosmetic disfigurement. If this sounds like you, then you may actually have a claim!
The popularity of cosmetic dental treatment such as veneers or implants is on the increase year on year. In addition to regular dental treatment for health and wellbeing, cosmetic dentistry is also an area where negligent actions during treatment can result in injury and permanent damage.
Risks involved in both regular and cosmetic dental treatment should have been clearly explained to you, and you should give properly informed consent before embarking on any procedure.
Common procedures where reports of dental negligence have caused injury include:
- Extraction or fillings
- Treatment of gum disease
- Teeth whitening
You may also feel like you have been misdiagnosed by your dentist too.
Do not feel pressured to continue treatment with your current dentist if you feel that their negligence has caused your dental injury. We will be able to help you seek an independent opinion and assess whether you have a case for a dental negligence compensation claim.
You may have a claim for dental negligence if your dentist or hygienist acted negligently, you could claim for the losses you have incurred, or the future treatment you will need to correct their errors.
