Dental Negligence

Dental treatment should be carried out in a safe, hygienic environment, by skilled and qualified practitioners. The premises should be equipped with instruments and materials appropriate to the clinical treatment provided, and the equipment must be correctly installed, checked and maintained. Reusable dental and medical instruments must be decontaminated to reduce the risk of infection.

Your dentist should give you clear information about the range of treatments that are available, and are relevant to your needs and preferences. This includes an explanation of the advantages, disadvantages, prognosis and costs of any treatment, as well as what may happen if you choose not to proceed.

Most dental patients are happy with the advice and treatment they receive and follow their dentist’s advice to maintain and improve oral health.  When mistakes are made, however, the pain and suffering caused can be long-term and lead to both emotional and physical stress.
