Going to the dentist is important for good oral health.  Yet, for many, it is a stressful experience.  We rely and trust that our dentists will take care of us and skillfully do what needs to be done to keep us healthy.

When the level of dental care provided causes us harm, dental malpractice may have occurred.

Some common types of dental malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose conditions like oral cancer or periodontal disease
  • Nerve injury to the jaw, tongue, and lips
  • Infection resulting from improper care
  • Defective bridges, crowns or other dental work that cause harm to teeth or gums
  • Improper or needless extraction of teeth – such as extracting the wrong tooth
  • Wrong prescriptions and/or dosages

If any of the above has occurred, or poor dental care has resulted in permanent injury or harm to your health, you may have grounds for a dental malpractice lawsuit.
