Dentists and orthodontists are under the same obligations as any other type of physician regarding the standards of care they deliver. As with any other type of medical care, there are accepted standards of care to which a physician must adhere. Failing to meet those standards and harming a patient is the basis for a medical malpractice claim. Dentists and orthodontists have their own standards of care that they must meet. When they deviate from or fail to meet those standards and a patient is injured that patient has a right to seek compensation.
Common issues that can be the basis for a dental or orthodontic malpractice case include:
- Improper root canal treatment
- Failure to diagnose oral or dental tumors
- Improperly performed implants
- Improperly performed extractions
- Improper application of anesthesia
These issues can cause serious injuries such as infection and can result in fatalities.
Dentists and orthodontists who deviate from the accepted standards of care need to be held accountable for the harm they cause. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a dentist or orthodontist, you deserve to be compensated for those injuries.
