Dental Malpractice

Common types of dental malpractice:

  • Delayed Diagnoses
  • Delayed Treatment of Oral Disease
  • Dental Surgical Errors
  • Failure to Diagnose Oral Disease
  • Failure to Obtain Informed Consent
  • Misuse or Infection Caused by Dental Tools
  • Needless Removal of Teeth
  • Negligent Dental Work

Dentistry is a precise science and practice. Whether you see a dentist, a periodontal specialist, or an oral surgeon, you have the right to expect competent and proper dental care. You also deserve to be fully informed about the work to be done, the procedures involved, and the risks of each.

We trust our oral health professionals—orthodontists, dentists, periodontists, oral surgeons—to make smart, informed choices about our welfare and take the necessary steps to prevent injury from dental traumas. At the very least, we trust that the dental treatment won’t exacerbate the problem.

SLF represents only seriously injured victims. We have built a reputation for our innovative analyses of potential medical malpractice cases, and we review each case carefully before we accept it. It’s paramount to us that we give you the right resources, personal attention, and education. In this way, you are positioned to recover optimally, and rest assured that the wrongdoers who compromised your health and livelihood will be aggressively pursued and held accountable.
