Failure in dental practice can be a painful and traumatic experience. You may be entitled to seek compensation. We can assist with providing expert legal advice to help you through this difficult time.  


What Is a Claim for Dental Negligence? Dental negligence arises from any injury caused by the negligence of a dentist, dental nurse or other dental health professional. It may require expert evidence to prove how the injury was caused and that it was down to the negligence of the dentist.


Examples of dental negligence include the following:


  • Mistakes in Dental Treatment

  • Defective Cosmetic Dentistry

  • Nerve Damage

  • Delay or Incorrect Diagnosis


Who is the Claim Against? If your dentist, or other dental operative has caused damage due to negligent treatment, then you may be able to make a compensation claim against them, whether or not your dentist is an NHS or private provider.


How long do you have to make a claim? Subject to certain exceptions, under normal circumstances you will need to commence a dental negligence claim within three years from the date you were aware you may have received negligent treatment.
