The majority of dentists are very successful in helping their patients to achieve good oral health and ensure that they receive the best treatment possible. Unfortunately, this is not the case for all and, each year, thousands of people suffer the effects of dental negligence.
Dentists have a duty of care towards patients to ensure that they receive proper treatment and the majority of dentists are successful in helping their patients to achieve good oral health.
However, if the worst happens when you are undergoing your dental treatment and you end up suffering as a result, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. If the standard of care shown by a dental practitioner slips below the acceptable level then you may have a case for compensation.
There is a whole range of dental accidents that can be classed as medical negligence. These include:
I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. First Personal Injury dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend First Personal Injury to anyone who wants to make an accident claim.

Dental Negligence is a type of medical negligence for which compensation can be claimed when careless or incorrect dental work results in personal injury. It is appropriate to make a dental accident claim either against the dentist who caused the personal injury if the work was done privately, or the NHS if it was publicly funded.
If you feel like you have been let down by a member of the dental profession or you are suffering pain as a result of the treatment that you have received, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
