Am I a Victim of Dental Malpractice?

  • Confusing patient records
  • Operating on the wrong tooth or performing the incorrect procedure
  • Orthodontic errors
  • Oral surgery errors
  • Problems filling cavities 
  • Crown errors, root canal errors
  • Failing to be aware of dental conditions and other injuries that a dentist with adequate training would be able to recognize

What Do You Have to Prove in a Dental Malpractice Claim?

Here is what you have to prove to win a dental malpractice claim:

  1. Duty – All dentists and other dental professionals have a duty of reasonable care to their patients. They must exercise an adequate level of care and skill. To prove this step, you need to show that you were a patient of the dental professional in question.
  2. Breach of duty – You have to show that the dentist didn’t live up to the reasonable standard of care. Dentists don’t always have a perfect outcome, but they are expected to have a basic competency level as they perform their job. You show this step by explaining what would be a reasonable amount of care in that situation and showing how the dentist’s actions did not live up to that standard.
  3. Causation – The breach of duty of care must be the cause of some harm to you. Injuries, failing to diagnose a condition and failing to provide competent treatment can all cause damage.
  4. Damages – Physical injuries (and the cost to treat them) are damages. Injuries can also be accompanied by pain and suffering. Your damages are your financial losses as well as an amount to represent your pain and suffering.
