Claims in respect of negligence in the provision of dental care have increased in recent years. With the decline of NHS care and the increase in private provision, patient expectations and treatment standards have risen. On occasions, however, treatment can and does go wrong.
When dental care is negligent, the cost of remedial care can run into many thousands of pounds. Common claims in relation to dental surgery include failing to obtain from a patient an appropriate informed consent, substandard treatment leading to tooth loss, nerve damage, implant failure and problems associated with orthodontic care.
