Good news! In recognition of the rise in the number of complaints against NHS dentists for poor dental treatment, the NHS has unveiled a new complaints procedure.
The process aims to help victims of bad dentistry to make an official complaint in order to highlight issues to the relevant bodies and to prompt an apology from the dental practice or practitioner.
Although this is a step in the right direction, as we too believe poor dental work needs to be highlighted, we also believe that sometimes the distress and pain caused by ineffective dental care needs more than just a sorry. Victims of bad dentistry need compensation to be able to repair the damage to their smile and in some case stop the intense pain.
At Thorneycroft solicitors we are experts in dealing with dental negligence claims whether it’s a misdiagnosis of gum disease or tooth decay, recommendation of unnecessary, expensive dental treatment or poor or ineffective cosmetic dental work.
Our aim is to ensure our clients not only get fair compensation for their pain and discomfort but also the compensation for loss of confidence or self-esteem as a result of an unsightly smile due to loss of teeth or wonky dental work.
Contact us now at Thorneycroft Solicitors if you feel you or someone you know may have been a victim of dental negligence whether it’s by a hospital practitioner, NHS or private dental practice or dental hygienist. Dental issues can occur over a number of years so if you are suffering now as a result of a dental care which occurred a number of years ago then call us now on 0800 1979 345 as you may be entitled to dental negligence compensation.
