Compensation for dental injuries

Every year people are injured following treatment by their dentist or dental practitioner. These injuries can often leave patients in a lot of pain and with traumatising memories of the experience.

If you have been injured as a result of dental treatment through the NHS or as a private patient, you may be able to claim compensation.

Examples of dental negligence claims include:

  • Failure to correctly diagnose a dental problem
  • Failure to correctly treat a dental problem
  • Failure to refer a patient for specialist treatment elsewhere
  • Failure to carry out dental procedures to a reasonable standard including fillings, the fitting and maintenance of ceramics and veneers and root canal treatment
