What is dental negligence?
A dental negligence claim can be made if you or a patient have recieved substandard care from the NHS or a private dentist office which has lead to an injury that could have been avoided. Having work done to your teeth or gums can naturally be painful but if you find that the patient was extreme and has lasted much longer than it should then you could claim.
Negligent use of anesthesia can also be claimed against, especially as anesthesia can leave a patient permanent damaged if the incorrect dose has been used. Allergic reactions can also be caused if the dentist failed to review medical records beforehand.
Lastly, misdiagnosis of ailments such as oral cancer can also happen if the dentist has not been thorough with their examination or failed to treat or refer if they spot any cancerous signs.
