Jonathan Owen took 5 minutes to discuss the importance of speaking up against your dentist and also how the Dental Law Partnership can help you move forward with your claim.
What are some of the most popular dental claims that the Dental Law Partnership deal with?
We see a lot of cases of supervised neglect where dentists have failed to diagnose caries or periodontal disease. We are also seeing more and more cases involving failed cosmetic and implant treatment.
Why is it important for patients to know their rights?
So that they can make fully informed decisions about their care.
Why do you think some patients are hesitant to speak up against their dentist?
Attending the dentist is often a stressful experience in itself. Patients can often feel intimidated because dentistry is such a specialised area and they lack the technical knowledge to fully assert themselves when complaining about a professional.
When it comes to numbers, how many successful dental claims have you been involved with?
Probably between 750 and 900 over the course of 15 years.
