Dental Malpractice

Dental malpractice arises when a dentist fails to uphold accepted medical standards within the field of dentistry and dental surgery. Dentists are required to exercise the same standards of skill and care as physicians in general. Any deviation from that standard of care can threaten patients with injury, pain, and on some occasions – even death.

Dental malpractice can arise by way of:

  • failure to properly detect an oral disease or malformation;
  • failure to diagnose or treat periodontal or gum disease;
  • improper utilization of dental or surgical utensils;
  • installation of defective dental products;
  • injury to an oral cavity or surrounding bone tissue during the course of a dental procedure;
  • facial paralysis, infections and surgical procedure errors;
  • negligence in taking tooth impressions, fitting or installing dentures;
  • anaesthesia errors and injuries;
  • nerve damage, root canal errors and tooth extraction injuries; and
  • unnecessary examinations or procedures; or insurance system abuse.

All of these errors are capable of causing irreparable physical and mental injury to innocent patients. Where there is dental malpractice, we pursue claims against:

  • Dentists
  • Anaesthesiologists
  • Dental Assistants
  • Pharmacists

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
