Unfortunately, mistakes can happen whilst in the dental chair. Some complications are unavoidable, but others occur as a result of lack of skill or care.
Unlike in other professions, Dentists often cannot undo errors that have been made. For example, once a tooth is removed, it cannot be replaced and often the only option is to have a bridge or implant, which is costly and distressing.
We are here to assist and advise if you consider you may have a claim against your Dentist.
Master B required treatment to a number of his baby teeth. Due to poor standard of care there was a failure to adequately fill the teeth with the result abscesses developed and 5 teeth had to be removed. Fortunately they were baby teeth and his adult teeth were unaffected but he suffered pain and distress. His case settled in the sum of £2,750.
Mrs C attended her dental surgery over many months complaining of problems with a number of teeth. Sadly there was a failure by the dentists to properly manage and treat the teeth with the result a number had to be removed. With our help she recovered £16,000 of which a large amount was to pay for remedial treatment.
Mrs F had implants which failed. The claim was settled at £4,500 for pain and suffering plus the expense of future treatment to rectify the problem
