See if you have a case for dental negligence:
Experiencing dental negligence can be extremely traumatic. Whilst you might not realise it whilst undergoing negligent treatment at the time, you are being let down by someone that you trust to look after your oral health, and sometimes the consequences can be difficult to deal with.
Some people who have experienced dental negligence are left with long-term or permanent issues with their teeth and pain that affects their daily life. They may also be left with visible dental issues that can affect their self-esteem and confidence. For those who are able to have restorative dental work to try and fix some or all of the issues caused by their negligent dentist, there are often significant costs associated with this, along with the sense of misjustice for what has happened.
If you suffered an injury or further dental problems because a dentist was negligent with your care, you might be able to make a dental negligence claim for compensation. No amount of money can turn back the clock and stop the negligence from having happened in the first place, but a successful claim can mean you are able to move forward from the situation and gain a sense of justice for what you have suffered. Compensation can help pay for restorative dental work and also replace any out of pocket expenses you have had due to the negligence e.g. lost wages due to your injury or related appointments.
