Dental Malpractice 

Did Your Dentist do something wrong?

Are you considering suing your dentist or dental professional? You may have a legal claim if a treatment provided by dental health care professionals falls below the acceptable standard of care resulting in serious injuries.

If the following applies to you, you may have a claim against your dentist or dental professional:
• Extracting the wrong tooth
• Recommending and performing unnecessary procedures
• Delayed diagnosis leading to the worsening of a condition (such as gum disease, infection or oral cancer)
• Causing nerve damage from dental procedure, including improper dental implant placement
• Faulty root canals, crowns, implants, veneers, or dental bridges resulting in injury and infections to the jaw, face and gums
• Negligence in failing to properly diagnose oral cancer or periodontal (gum) disease
• Incorrect use of dental anesthesia resulting in complication or even death
• Malalignment of teeth or bite malocclusion resulting from substandard dental procedures
• Failed dental procedures
• Injury to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) after dentistry procedures

• Wrong diagnosis
• Oral infections
