“Patients fail to realise that dentistry is loosely regulated, leaving them at risk from substandard treatment and large bills for remedial work should their treatment go wrong.”

Dental negligence refers to pain, injury or trauma suffered because of substandard treatment or dental malpractice. The most severe cases can have a dramatic impact on a person’s health, leading to the onset of permanent nerve damage, lifelong pain, or, in some cases, the progression of mouth cancer.
If you’ve experienced any of the following, you could be entitled to dental injury compensation.
If you believe you’ve been a victim of negligent dental care, you may be able to claim compensation for the following:
Compensation can help with the cost of rectifying your dentist’s mistakes to get your life back on track. A dental negligence settlement isn’t for financial gain, but to help cover the cost of ongoing treatment and care, and any loss of earnings which you may have incurred by taking time away from work to attend additional appointments.
There are plans to bring in legislation which will make insurance a legal requirement, but it is not clear when this is set to come into effect.
Thankfully, most cases are resolved out of court with a settlement, and your solicitor will ensure all settlement offers are given the correct consideration.
Guidance from the General Dental Council states that all dental practitioners in the UK should be insured against negligence – but there is no law to enforce it. This lack of firm legislation means that many dentists practising in the UK are not insured, placing a large responsibility on patients to do their research before receiving treatment.
Patients fail to realise that dentistry is loosely regulated, leaving them at risk from substandard treatment and large bills for remedial work should their treatment go wrong.
