When you visit your family dentist, you expect to be in the hands of a professional who is able to repair any issues you have with your teeth. However, this was not the case for Mrs D who experienced over 20 years of dental negligence from her dentists, Dr L and Dr D.
Despite her regular dentist appointments over the years, Mrs D began to experience pain in her gums and decided to ask for a second expert opinion. After another thorough examination, it was discovered that Mrs D had actually developed a severe case of gum disease resulting in a detrimental effect on her teeth over the 20 year period.
This discomforting realisation meant that Mrs D had to seek immediate treatment in order to repair the damage. It was also revealed that extensive bone loss had occurred in her mouth, and the only option was to extract the teeth. A large number of teeth will have to be removed causing extreme discomfort for Mrs D, who was also still trying to get over the shock of her overall mistreatment by Dr L and Dr D. In order to improve her confidence and smile, Mrs D will have to undergo surgical procedures to insert implants in place of the teeth.
After coming to the Dental Law Partnership with her claim, Mrs D explained her difficult situation to our team of qualified solicitors who then took on the case on her behalf. The outcome was a success for our client who was awarded £55,000 in order to compensate her for her treatment and to assist towards the cost of the restorative treatment she needs to undergo.
