Dental negligence, also known as dental malpractice, occurs when a dental professional fails to provide proper care and treatment to a patient, resulting in harm or injury to the patient. Dental negligence can occur in a variety of ways, such as misdiagnosis, improper treatment, or failure to provide adequate care or follow-up.
Examples of dental negligence include performing unnecessary procedures, failing to diagnose or treat oral diseases or infections, causing nerve damage during a dental procedure, or providing substandard dental care that results in injury or harm to the patient.
Patients who have suffered harm due to dental negligence may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. This may include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
