What is dental malpractice?

Doctors are not the only ones who can make a critical error that leads to serious injuries or death while caring for their patient - dentists can also. Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist fails to properly diagnose or treat an oral health condition. It can occur while performing a routine cleaning or undertaking a tooth extraction.

Dentists, like any medical professional, must be sure to address their work with care and attention. Examples of some of the most common results of dental malpractice include:

· Nerve damage

· Unnecessary tooth extraction or wrong tooth extraction

· Failure to diagnose oral cancer or periodontal disease

· Complications due to negligent work

Dental malpractice cases are often complex. It is helpful to have documented written evidence in order to prove your case and file a claim against the dentist.

It is critical that the dentist be held responsible for mistakes that occur. If you were injured as a result of your dentist's malpractice, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has been successful in dental malpractice cases - one that can help you secure compensation for your injuries, expenses, and pain and suffering.
