Dental Negligence

Having dental treatment at the best of times can be unnerving and patients generally trust their dentist to provide proper treatment. Unfortunately damage and side effects can occur in some cases where you have been provided with sub-standard or negligent treatment. If you feel that your treatment has been inappropriate or incompetent and it can be proved the treatment you received was below the standard you should expect from a competent dentist, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

SC Law has a panel of specialist dental and other experts to prepare the reports needed to support a claim for dental negligence.

Our dental negligence solicitors at SC Law understand the distress caused by dental mistakes through sub-standard service and that pursuing a claim at an already stressful time is another problem to cope with. We will provide practical, attentive and sympathetic advice so you feel reassured that your dental negligence claim is being handled by an expert. Our lawyers will put your needs first and work closely with you to make the process as simple and easy to understand as possible.

At SC Law, our dental negligence lawyers have extensive experience in handling negligence cases affecting the teeth, mouth or jaw and sometimes other parts of the body. We have some of the best London lawyers and know what action to take to make a positive difference to our clients.

Common Types of Dental Negligence

There are many different types of dental negligence and we have listed the most common types below:

  • Failure to carry out root canal treatment instead of extraction
  • Nerve damage
  • Failure to detect and treat gum disease
  • Facial damage
  • Fractured jaw during treatment
  • Incorrect anaesthesia (so you can feel the pain but can't move/alert the dentist)
  • We also deal with other less common types of negligence. Please contact us to discuss this further.

Action We Will Take

Our dental negligence lawyers understand that if you have suffered from a dental mistake or sub-standard service, you will be going through an emotional and stressful time.
