Mrs C, from the South West, became a victim of dental malpractice by two dentists who failed to diagnose and treat decay in her mouth. This traumatic experience led to a successful win of £7,000 after the Dental Law Partnership took on the case.
When we visit the dentist we expect to be treated with a high level of care, yet this is not always the case, as Mrs C unfortunately found out when she attended routine appointments with Dr O and Dr P. Mrs C attended an appointment complaining of lost bridgework. However rather than treating the decay that Mrs C was suffering from that was the cause of the lost bridgework Dr P simply recemented the bridge. Mrs C repeatedly returned to the dental practice to see Dr O, who also failed to diagnose and treat the decay that Mrs C was suffering from
Mrs C decided to look for a third opinion, and it was established by another dentist that Dr O and Dr P had failed to diagnose and treat decay that had been visible on Mrs C’s x-ray. As this was left to deteriorate, her bridgework began to fail leading to the loss of three teeth. Mrs C had gone through extreme discomfort and countless, traumatic visits to her dentists who did not maintain her oral health.
She said, “I was not satisfied at all with how I’d been treated and I had a feeling they hadn’t done all they could to fix the issue. I was absolutely devastated when I found out I had to lose three of my teeth.”
