Do you believe you have been the victim of dental malpractice? If you also think you have been treated with unsterile tools at a dental office. Remember negligence can be the dentist or hygienist.
Have you been to a dentist and after a couple days later you are in more pain now than before your visit? Have you had a procedure done that was not needed? Has your dentist ever given you the wrong medication? Has your dentist removed the wrong tooth?
We’ve all heard the term dental malpractice before, but just what does it entail, exactly?
Dental malpractice refers to any injury that is the result of negligent dental care, any sort of misconduct perpetrated by a dental professional, or an injury stemming from a dental procedure. It can even be the result of a dentist failing to point out or treat various oral conditions.
