Dental Negligence: In Pain and Paying the Price for Poor Dental Treatment

In recognition of National Smile Month, our Clinical Negligence team discuss what to do if you have been the victim of substandard dental work.

National Smile Month aims to raise awareness and improve Oral Health throughout the nation; the campaign which was set up by the British Dental Health Foundation highlights the importance of improving and maintaining oral care.

Government guidelines suggest visiting your dentist on a regular basis. The dentist will perform a dental inspection and evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. Although most dental practitioners in the UK provide a good standard of dentistry work, unfortunately this is not always the case.  Sometimes treatment can fall below the satisfactory level expected negligent treatment can cause unnecessary pain and suffering including financial losses.

At TLW our Clinical Negligence team specialise and act for clients who have been the victim of Dental Negligence.  We cover a wide range of dental negligence claims including:

  • Cosmetic Dentistry Negligence
  • Orthodontic Treatment Negligence
  • Wisdom Teeth Dental Claims
  • Root Canal Treatment Negligence
  • Incorrect Dental Diagnosis Claims

Christina Batson, Head of Clinical Negligence at TLW Solicitors said, ‘TLW fully support National Smile Month. Oral Health is often overlooked. I have seen clients come to us that are still in pain, paying for costly restorative dental treatments and have had to take time of work due to substandard dental treatment, this is when access to professional legal advice can provide much needed support and assistance’.
