    What is Dental Negligence?

    What is Dental Negligence?

    Dental Negligence occurs when you receive substandard care from any of the dental professionals involved in your treatment, be it a surgical or non-surgical procedure. This negligence can occur before, during or after dental procedure. It can include everything from mistakes made during the procedure, to being misled or uninformed about a potential complication involved, or even failure to provide adequate aftercare and post-procedure advice.
    With the most popular dental procedures now being non-surgical ones such as professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and orthodontics, we are seeing more issues arise due to unqualified and inadequately regulated dentists/orthodontists carrying them out. If you have been affected by work carried out by a dentist/orthodontist, we may be able to help.

    If you're suffering, we can help

    If you're suffering, we can help

    All dentists and orthodontists have a duty of care, regardless of your reasons for undergoing a procedure. Even the most performed surgeries and procedures carry some risks, but these should never be due to negligence or neglect of care by a dentist or orthodontist. Our expert team is here to help get you the support you need. Get in touch with us today to find out for free if you can make a No Win, No Fee claim. We’ll support you through every step of the process to get you the compensation you deserve. You have nothing to lose but potentially everything to gain.

    If you have experienced complications because of mistakes made during the treatment you have received, whether in an NHS or a private setting, you may be able to claim for Dentistry Negligence. To be able to proceed with a Dentistry Negligence case, you need to be able to prove:

    Breach of duty – proving that the dentist/orthodontist failed to meet the legal standard of duty of care to you.

    Causation – proving that the treatment you received was the cause of your injury (or caused your condition to get worse).

    Damages or losses – giving clear evidence of the harm you have suffered as a result, and any financial losses or expenses you have incurred.

    There are some instances in which the surgery or procedure carried out may not have given you your desired results, or where you suffered complications that were unavoidable or among the risks associated with the procedure that were explained to you. In these instances, there could be no one to blame and a claim for compensation is unlikely to be successful.

    As with most dental procedures, there are many risks and complications associated with dental procedures and surgery. By law, these risks and potential complications should all be explained to you by the treating professional prior to the procedure taking place. If you still believe you have been incorrectly treated, have been provided with inadequate care, or the procedure has been conducted incorrectly and left you with injuries, pain, or scarring, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

    Contact us today so we can assess your case details and start the ball rolling to get you the compensation you deserve.

    Each case will be investigated individually, and the amount of compensation received will vary from case to case. However, among the factors considered that will contribute towards determining a final settlement are:

    • General damages – pain, suffering and loss of amenity.
    • Special damages – any financial expenses and losses you may have incurred as a result of the incident.
    • The extent of your injuries (physical and psychological) and how they have affected your daily life.
    • Any further corrective surgery or medical expenses you may need.

    Start your claim today

    When a surgery has gone wrong, sometimes there is no other option than to undergo further surgery to correct the mistakes. Corrective surgery can, of course, be costly. These costs will be taken into account when your final compensation settlement is being considered, helping alleviate some of the worry.

    Start your claim today
