We know that visiting the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience at the best of times.
If you’ve been injured after receiving substandard treatment at a private or NHS dentist, you may be entitled to claim dental negligence compensation.
Examples of dental negligence
Typical cases of dental negligence include:
Substandard treatment: Your dentist performs a procedure, such as a root canal or tooth removal incorrectly, resulting in pain or discomfort that could have been avoided, or removes the wrong tooth
Misdiagnosis: You have a dental problem, such as tooth decay, that isn’t correctly diagnosed by your dentist, meaning you need further treatment
Cosmetic errors: Your dentist carries out a procedure that results in scarring or the loss of one or more teeth
