Dental Surgery Claims

Dental Surgery Claims

Some of the reasons for making a claim against a dentist include:

Failure to diagnose a serious dental condition that results in injury and pain

This can have serious or even fatal consequences, particularly if you are suffering from a condition such as oral cancer.

Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of a serious dental condition which results in pain and suffering

Avoidable injuries could be caused if the wrong treatment is carried out.

Failure to obtain consent from patients

Dentists are under a duty to advise patients of any other treatments that may be less harmful and to provide information regarding risks or side effects that may occur. Please note that it is vital that you also have capacity to consent as this should be provided of your own free will.

Inability to treat a known dental disease

If a condition is diagnosed but the dentist fails to treat it correctly or at all, you may be able to pursue a claim for damages.

Unsatisfactory dental procedures. 

If a dental procedure or practice is carried out inadequately, you may suffer an injury and be able to pursue a claim for compensation.

Potential damages to be pursued

  • Financial cost of future dental treatment
    If your dentist makes a mistake, you may have to pay for future treatment to fix the mistake.
  • Physical symptoms as a result of dental negligence
  • Loss of earnings
    If you suffer from a serious injury during routine dental treatment, you may incur a loss of earnings as a result of not being able to work.
  • Psychological symptoms
    If you are a victim of negligent dental treatment, this may be deemed to be a traumatic experience which could lead to you suffering from psychological symptoms or to aggravating a pre-existing fear of undergoing dental treatment.
