Dental malpractice can seriously hinder a patient’s appearance and general health. A dentist, like any other medical professional, is responsible for providing you with professional and safe treatment. Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist or dental professional negligently performs dental care and causes harm to their patient. Our attorneys have handled many different types of dental malpractice cases – from removing the wrong (not numb) tooth, to a case where a dentist left a saw blade embedded in a patient’s gum. Dental issues are especially sad due to their immediate impact on one’s confidence, appearance and social life.

If you are the victim of dental negligence, our firm can assist you in recovering medical expenses, lost wages, and the cost of future treatment relating to your injury. If you have a serious injury or condition resulting from dental malpractice which has resulted in physical pain or emotional distress, you may be able to receive compensation for those injuries as well. Dentists must treat their patients within the accepted medical “standard of care.” If your dentist violated the standard of care in your treatment, you may have a case against your dentist for your injuries. A broken smile affects many areas of life.
