The fear of dentists, called dentophobia, is not uncommon and is justified in some cases. During a dental procedure, several things might occur to cause injury or even death that constitutes malpractice.

What is Dental Malpractice?

Malpractice intentionally or unintentionally harms a patient by failing to deliver the expected standard of care.

Sometimes the harm might be an error in surgery, but it could also be a failure to diagnose and treat a condition. Negligence with anesthesia can result in brain injuries. Injuries and medical malpractice claims can extend to dentists, oral surgeons, dental assistants, endodontists, orthodontists, and other dental specialists. Dentists supervising dental assistants at the time of the malpractice can be held responsible for substandard dental care.

Filing a Claim

To prove dental malpractice took place, hiring a seasoned medical malpractice attorney is essential. A dental malpractice lawyer can interpret medical records, photographs, and x-rays to build a case against the practitioner.

For a claim to be successful, you must be able to prove four things:

  • The dental professional had a duty to you (the patient).
  • The duty was breached by the failure to provide care.
  • The patient experienced harm due to this failure.
  • Damages occurred as a result of bodily harm.

It is relatively easy to prove there was a duty of care through appointment records, and the remaining points are verified through medical documents of the procedure. Our law firm can support you through this process.

In the Event of Wrongful Death

Burial costs and significant damages for pain and suffering can be awarded when wrongful death occurs due to failure to diagnose, failure to treat, or an unanticipated allergic reaction.
