Dental Claims Lawyers
What is dental treatment negligence?
Dental negligence involves an existing dental condition being worsened by the incompetence of a dental professional performing treatment on you. It can also sometimes involve your life being endangered with inappropriate advice for your condition. Those who provide you with dental treatment have a duty of care towards you, and if this duty of care has been breached, you should speak to a dental negligence lawyer.

Examples of errors that can be claimed for may include:
- Surgical errors
