Dental Negligence

Claims arising out of dental negligence can involve your general dentist, orthodontist, oral surgeon or other sub-specialties of dentistry. Usually, cases arise because of poor planning (recommending the wrong course of treatment) or the right treatment plan with timeframes between intervention that are too short. Cases can also arise when a Dentist who isn’t qualified to perform the surgery they recommend does the surgery themselves, often in their consulting room without proper a proper surgical setting being available (or adequate post-operative follow up)

Dental claims are a highly technical area of medical negligence claims and need the right expert specialties examining the right information to provide an informed opinion. We have a particular expertise in dental claims specifically and have achieved excellent results in this complicated area.

You will get to know your lawyer with regular communications about your case. Rather than cold emails or text messages we prefer to speak with you face to face or on the telephone to get to know you and your individual situation, as well as to build your trust and to give you the most value out of each conversation.

Specialist Expertise and Courageous representation

Like properly provided medical treatment, winning your case involves meticulous preparation and good execution. We plan, anticipate and execute an individual strategy in each case to maximise your compensation and give you honest advice.
