Woman from North East wins £7,500 in compensation after more than a decade of dental negligence
Miss L from the North East has a successful win with Dental Law Partnership after going through a stressful ordeal with his dentist. Miss L was compensated £7,500 for dental neglect by her longstanding family dentist of over 10 years.
Miss L had been experiencing frequent pain in an individual tooth for some time when she went to see Dr W with the problem. Although she thought the issue could have been solved promptly by Dr W, she was told it was not a straightforward matter and the recurring discomfort was caused by a tooth which had been decaying for some time.
It was recommended by Dr W that a crown could be put in place in order to save the tooth. Miss L agreed to the painful procedure which she thought would then be the end of the problem. Unfortunately, this was not the case, and for a number of weeks, Miss L’s agony continued.
She said: “I wasn’t happy with the treatment I’d received so I decided the best option would be to have to the tooth looked at by another dentist.”
After visiting another professional, the poor standard of Dr W’s work was then revealed. Miss L’s tooth was so severely decayed, a crown placement should have never been an option. In order to repair her smile and due to the lack of attention by Dr W, Miss L had to then go through further agonising treatment, involving complete removal of the tooth. Miss L now requires an implant.
Following this trauma, Miss L took her case up with the Dental Law Partnership and our team of professional dental solicitors fought and won his case against Dr W.
