Visiting the dentist can be a very unnerving experience for many people. Although most dental surgery is performed to a high standard there are times when things go wrong which is where we can help you claim compensation.
Your dentist has a duty of care to carry out work to a certain standard, and if work carried out falls below this standard then you could be entitled to make a claim for dental compensation.
Dental negligence claims can be made for a variety of different reasons including misdiagnosis of a condition, not treating a condition correctly, or careless dental work by your dentist such as extraction of the wrong tooth or injury during treatment.
If you have suffered as a result of careless dental work you could be entitled to claim for dental negligence compensation.
