Dental Negligence

The recent Article in the Daily Mail that confirms that over 5700 NHS dental patients have been contacted with regards to a Dentist’s failing to sterilise equipment is truly shocking. To believe that it would be acceptable to reuse a needle from one patient to another is beyond belief really but unfortunately things like this do happen.

The letter from the Chief Executive plays down the risks involved but clearly a lot of people will be concerned.

To be told you may have been exposed to HIV, hepatitis and other blood-borne illnesses will be quite a shock and undoubtedly a lot of companies will now jump on the “Dental Negligence” band wagon.

My advice would be to be careful ..if you have concerns speak to a solicitor who has the relevant knowledge and experience and who works with a recognised dental expert.
