£35,000 damages for patient who has had six teeth removed following claim against her dentist for poor care


A woman has received a £35,000 damages settlement after making a legal claim against her dentist for failing to properly care for her – causing her years of excruciating pain and the loss of a number of teeth.

Mother-of-two Georgie Feder, 43, only discovered she had 50 per cent bone loss due to gum disease after switching her dentists.

The poor care has led to her since having six of her back teeth removed, and facing prolonged remedial treatment to tackle gum disease and ensure permanent new implants can be fitted successfully, following bone graft and sinus lift procedures.

Ashleigh Dance, a specialist in handling dental claims at Hudgell Solicitors, represented Mrs Feder in a legal case against dentist Robert Riley, who she saw at Stirchley Dental Practice in Telford, Shropshire.

She said it was a case of a patient suffering because of a dentist ‘rushing patients in and out and not being thorough at check-ups’, as she called for tighter regulations of the profession.

Patient alerted when told she may lose teeth by a different dentist

Mrs Feder had first complained of pain and recurring abscesses in 2012, but despite numerous visits to see Mr Riley, she says her problems worsened.

When Mr Riley was absent for one check-up, she was told by another dentist that she may need three teeth removing, causing her to question her care and start doing her own research, leading to her worrying that she may have a major infection.

Having then sought further opinion from a nearby private practice in July 2015, she was informed of the full extent of her dental problems.

“They told me I had gum disease that was eating away at my jaw bone,” she said.

“I was disgusted by what had been allowed to happen to my teeth. I had been a patient at the practice since 2004 and had what I thought was a good rapport with my dentist.”

Legal claim alleged string of failures in care and treatment of gum disease

As part of the legal case against Mr Riley it was alleged he had failed to diagnose, treat or monitor Mrs Feder’s gum disease, or refer her for specialist advice.

He also faced allegations of failing to exercise reasonable skill and care in root canal treatment, crown replacement, tooth restoration, the diagnosis or treatment of tooth decay or cavities, and failed to diagnose, monitor and provide the appropriate treatment for gum disease.

This included failing to diagnose bone loss, failing to inform Mrs Feder of the extent of her problems, and failing to explain to her how gum disease could cause tooth loss if left untreated.

Although no formal admissions were made, Mr Riley’s indemnity providers agreed to a £35,000 damages settlement.

Mrs Feder, who lives in Telford, says she remains angry over the pain she suffered, believing she had been in good hands.

She said: “I remember that I kept getting abscesses when I was pregnant and he just kept giving me antibiotics rather than actual treatment. It never got any better. Once my son had been born, I’d had enough and I was in tears. The abscesses crippled me.

“I stayed with the practice for another week to see Mr Riley after seeing the other dentist at the practice in his absence. I felt so deflated. I asked why I had bone loss and all he said was some people have it and some don’t.

“He sent me away, and I still didn’t have a follow-up call. It was then that I googled it and read that I must have an infection, so that’s when I went to the private dentist for the second opinion. I got an appointment the following week and I was in tears.

“The really annoying and upsetting thing is that I have been told there was a simple fix to the problems and that it was all completely preventable. You trust these people when they tell you things and you come away believing what they say.”

Mrs Feder now remains under the care of the private practice which informed her of the extent of the treatment she required, having had treatment to prevent further bone loss. She is now awaiting implants having had six back teeth removed.

She said years of dental problems had a huge impact on her life and confidence.

“I had years of going backwards and forwards to the dentist and I believe the infection started back in about 2009,” she said.

“I had so much going on with my teeth and I would have gone private if I’d known sooner. I missed so much of my son growing up because I was in agony.

“The whole thing has had a massive impact on my confidence and had an impact on every aspect of my life. I don’t feel able to smile any more as when I smile fully you can see the gaps at the sides of my mouth.

Compensation has helped cover the cost of dental repairs

Mrs Feder added: “A lot of the compensation I have received is going on the continued dental repair work I need to have, such as root canals, implants and bridges. My new dentist has been my second home and it’s still ongoing, but I’m hoping this will be a better year.”

Mrs Dance, a specialist in handling cases of dental negligence at Hudgell Solicitors, said: “This is a classic case of someone who has seen the same dentist for a number of years, had quick check-ups and that’s it.

 “It has taken for her to go elsewhere to discover the true extent of the problem and she could still lose more teeth.

“It’s awful, she is still only young and certainly should not have faced these sorts of problems at her age. She has lost a lot of teeth already and needs invasive and further treatment in the future. If it had been picked up in the first place, she would still have all of those teeth.

“I don’t believe there is enough regulation in the dental industry. Dentists need to be more thorough and not rush patients in and out.”

Mrs Feder said she was delighted with the support and guidance from Ashleigh and Hudgell Solicitors.

“She was amazing, so sympathetic and understanding,” she said.

“She listened to me when I was down and was really caring. I can’t speak highly enough of Hudgell Solicitors and the help they gave me. The compensation has been crucial in paying for the work I have needed.”

10 Things to Consider when Choosing a New Dentist

Dentist's Light | Choosing a Dentist | Hudgell Solicitors

For the majority of people, choosing a new dentist is all a matter of convenience. We want to get from home to the dentist chair and back again as quickly as possible, making the annual check-up that little less stressful. The question is: are we putting our dental health at risk by opting for proximity over the quality of patient care?

At Hudgell Solicitors, we encounter cases of dental negligence on a daily basis. From 2015 to 2016, the number of dental claims we received rose by 30%, and in the last 12 months alone, we’ve secured around £500,000 in compensation for people who have suffered substandard care at the hands of their dentist. This raises questions about what more can be done to make sure everyone gets the dental care and treatment they expect and deserve.

In honour of National Smile Month, an annual event organised by the Oral Health Foundation which takes place between 13 May and 13 June and aims to promote better oral health and hygiene, we’re looking at some of the things you should think about when registering with a new dentist. Knowing what to look for from a new dental practitioner in terms of accreditation’s and qualifications, as well as things like cleanliness and equipment, can help you steer clear of substandard surgeries — potentially saving you from the pain and misery of inadequate dental work and negligence.

Whether you’ve recently moved house or are unhappy with your current practice, here we list 10 things to consider when choosing a new dentist.

Remember — You’re Not Bound to a Catchment Area

Unlike when registering for a GP, you aren’t bound by catchment area restrictions when signing up to a dentist. You can choose a practice that meets your requirements even if it isn’t in your local area. This is something dental patients often fail to realise, with many assuming that they’re stuck with their nearest surgery or none at all.

Of course, you’ll still want to choose a dentist that’s convenient and easy to access, so you can attend appointments without too much disruption. Remember that you have a choice when choosing a dentist, and that the closest may not be the best. Before settling on a dentist, why not look at those available near your work? This could provide even greater convenience, and may mean the difference between poor or high-quality treatment and care.


Check Dentist Credentials with the General Dental Council

When searching for a new dentist, many patients don’t stop to consider the credentials of individual practitioners, working under the assumption that the profession is closely regulated. As specialists in dental negligence claims, we know that the sector isn’t as well monitored as patients are led to believe — with some dental practices lacking the proper accreditation, and others failing to invest in the appropriate indemnity cover.

In a previous article, our clinical negligence expert, Sam Thompson, touched on the issue of dentists failing to provide indemnity cover to protect patients in cases of negligence and substandard treatment. Sam highlighted that dental patients are often some of the least protected in the UK when things go wrong, with some dentists failing to secure cover even though it’s a requirement of the General Dental Council (GDC) that dentists have the necessary insurance in place before renewing their registration.

Given the lack of concrete regulation in the dental profession, it’s vital that you do your research before registering with a dentist and receiving treatment. The easiest way to check the credentials and cover of a dentist is via the General Dental Council (GDC) website, where you can search for all dental professionals on the current GDC database.

Check for Cleanliness and Professionalism

One of the simplest ways to ascertain a quality dentist from a poor one is to assess the hygiene, cleanliness and general professionalism of their practice. It’s important to choose a dentist you feel comfortable with, so during your first visit to the surgery, consider the following:

  • Do the premises appear clean and tidy? Is the equipment sanitised before each use, and is the treatment room clean, well-lit and organised?
  • Do the dentists, nurses and hygienists wear gloves and protective gear when administering treatment?
  • Are members of the dental team willing to answer your questions and offer further advice and information?

Most dental practices will be happy to give you a short tour of the surgery and introduce members of the dentistry team if you ask — particularly if you’re nervous or anxious about receiving dental treatment. This makes it possible to assess the cleanliness of the practice before committing to treatment, so you can make a better-informed decision on whether it’s the right dentist for you.


Seek Recommendations from Trusted Sources

According to the Oral Health Foundation, one of the best ways to find a dentist you can rely on is to seek recommendations and testimonials from those who have undergone successful treatment with the dentist in question. Whether it’s a family member, friend or colleague, seeking a personal recommendation will make the decision much easier, and give you the confidence and peace of mind that you’re putting your dental health in competent hands.

If you’re moving house and need a new dentist, don’t be afraid to ask your existing practitioner for a recommendation. Dentists will be happy to refer you to other dental professionals they approve of or can vouch for, which can take a lot of legwork out of searching for a new provider.

Other Things to Consider When Choosing a Dentist

If you’re having difficulty finding a dentist that meets your requirements, here’s a checklist of other things you should consider that could make the decision a little easier:

  • Are the surgery opening hours convenient for you? Make sure their business hours fit around your schedule, and enquire about the availability of late opening.
  • What’s the process for emergency dental work? Does the surgery offer emergency appointments out of normal working hours? If so, how much does this cost and who will you need to contact to access the service?
  • What kind of provision do they offer for preventive dentistry? If your oral health is important to you, make sure you choose a dentist with a good approach to preventive dentistry. You should also ask if they have a hygienist on site.
  • What kind of help and support do they offer to people who are nervous about the dentist? If you or a member of your family is nervous about visiting the dentist, enquire about the practice’s approach to anxious patients, specifically what they do to ease these worries and concerns.
  • If you’re visiting a private clinic, ask how much they charge for basic procedures. Prices may vary depending on the practice, so do your research beforehand to avoid being stung by higher-than-expected fees.
  • Does the dentist have experience in treating people with additional needs? If you or a loved one has additional needs, make sure the dentist you choose has experience in treating patients with this type of condition, and that they have the equipment and facilities to carry out the procedure.

Error making dentists must repair the damage – and fully compensate patients for suffering and loss

Teeth and dental equipment


New statistics released by Citizens Advice have shown a substantial increase in the number of cases relating to poor dentistry over the past 12 months, with the service handling 4,000 enquiries over dental care problems last year.

These may be figures which shocked many – and led to national newspaper headlines – but they certainly were no surprise to our team of dental claims specialists here at Hudgell Solicitors.

The dental profession is one we have long raised concerns over, due to lapse regulations and a lack of accountability placing patients at risk.

Substandard dental service was said to be the biggest issue reported to the consumer service about dental care between April 2015 and March 2016.

People reported problems such as dentists cracking healthy teeth during a treatment, fillings coming out and dentures that didn’t fit. Further analysis of 354 of these cases revealed that three in four cases concerned, treatments actually caused the patient further problems.

In nearly a quarter (23%) of those cases patients said dentists also then refused to offer a refund or a free-of-charge repair.

In one case, a woman in her 70s paid £500 to have her teeth capped, only for the dentist to chip her two front teeth during the treatment. The dentist didn’t offer a repair or any compensation, and she then paid another dentist a further £700 to get the damage fixed.

This is truly shocking.

Patients have right to be compensated after dental negligence

When we visit our dentist, we have the right to expect the best standard of treatment by a qualified professional.

And should things do go wrong – which they often do – patients should certainly not be expected to pay to repair the damage themselves. It should be the opposite, they should be compensated for their pain, suffering, and often loss.

We represent an increasing number of clients who have suffered from poor dental treatment, from dentists simply failing to identify and treat gum disease (often despite patients having many regular check-ups) to poorly fitting crowns and painful abscesses caused by errors in treatment.

Between October 2014 and October 2015, close to 60 cases relating to sub-standard dentistry care led to patients being compensated after turning to us for help. In total, the money paid out was in excess of £540,000.

In our view, it is always advisable to seek a second opinion should you have any concerns you’re your dental treatment, especially if your dentist suddenly suggests extensive treatment, or if you have doubts over the quality of service you’ve received.

Our specialists recently secured compensation of £47,000 in a dental negligence claim as a patient had received poor care over four decades, resulted in them suffering serious gum disease and facing the loss of eight teeth.

It was only when the dentist retired from the practice, and the patient started seeing another dentist at the same surgery, that the widespread gum disease, which was destroying the patient’s gums and putting teeth at risk, was uncovered.

Dentists must ‘provide clear information about claiming compensation’

Unfortunately, dentists are often a choice of convenience, rather than research. Many simply choose practice closet to their home, without checking details on performance.

This is a risk, as most people fail to realise that dentistry is a very loosely regulated profession, leaving patients at risk of receiving sub-standard treatment, and potentially facing large bills for remedial work, should their treatment go wrong.

This is because many dentists practising in the UK abscond when they become aware of potential claims and some do not have indemnity cover in place, even though this is a requirement for registering with the GDC. Also, whilst cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, laser whitening and teeth straightening are being carried out by dentists who don’t have specific qualifications or experience of the procedures. They do the work simply because they are money spinners.

Our advice is to thoroughly research a dental practice before become a patient, and to check the General Dental Council (GDC) register of professionals before agreeing to any treatment.

If you have concerns, raise them, and if in any doubt seek a second opinion.

Citizens Advice chief executive Gillian Guy is calling on dentists to follow the rules by correcting their mistakes free of charge instead of passing costs onto patients, saying, and providing ‘clear information about how they can claim compensation if something goes wrong’.

Our team are available to provide that free legal advice should you or someone you know have concerns over your dental care.

World Oral Health Day – are you in safe hands or is your dentist causing the problem?

Teeth and dental equipment

By Sarah Smith, dental negligence lawyer at Hudgell Solicitors

This Sunday marks World Oral Health Day (March 20), an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health, and the importance of oral hygiene for both old and young.

However, as specialists in handling many cases of dental neglect, our team at Hudgell Solicitors knows that whilst it’s good to celebrate healthy teeth and gums, good advice isn’t quite as simple as suggesting you should regularly visit a dentist.

Between October 2014 and October 2015, we handled close to 60 cases relating to sub-standard dentistry care, securing our clients in excess of £540,000 in compensation.

This money reflected the suffering and loss for patients at the hands of dentists they trusted, with cases ranging from dentists simply failing to identify and treat gum disease (often despite patients having many regular check-ups) to poorly fitting crowns and painful abscesses caused by errors in treatment.

One dentist took out seven teeth without the patient’s consent, whilst another patient had to have 10 teeth taken out and dentures fitted because their dentist had failed to treat and manage gum disease over a period of years.

Uninsured dentists could put patients at risk

The key question isn’t really ‘do I go to the dentist enough?’ – it is more a question of ‘how do I know my oral health and teeth are in in good hands?’

Uninsured dentists are an increasing problem in the UK, as it is estimated that hundreds of thousands of patients could be at risk from practitioners defying laws requiring them to have cover should things go wrong.

It has been estimated and reported in the national media that more than a quarter of the 40,000 dentists in the UK qualified abroad and had little or no training in Britain.

We recently represented a patient who was fitted with an ill-fitting bridge, costing her approximately £2,000. During the treatment, she suffered damage to two healthy front teeth.

As a consequence of the negligent treatment, she required root canal treatment and two crowns. The root canal treatment cost was £750+ per tooth, and the crowns required replacement around every 12 years, at a cost of approximately £700+ per crown.

However, upon investigating the claim it was discovered that not only had the dentist failed to maintain proper insurance, but also he had left the country and emigrated to South Africa.

It turned out that there was a string of complaints against this dentist, and the GDC held a Disciplinary Hearing where other allegations were heard, including poor care administered to his patients over his many years of practice.

Cosmetic dentistry is booming, but choose your dentist carefully

Cosmetic dentistry is also an increasingly worrying area, with procedures such as laser whitening and teeth straightening becoming more and more popular.

However, this boom in popularity is not evidence of a completely safe industry, as loose regulations again mean many dentists are carrying out work without having any specific qualifications, or experience of carrying out the procedures.

Last year, a survey conducted on our behalf revealed that despite 75 per cent of people being concerned about a lack of information around cosmetic surgery, close to half said they would still go through with a procedure. The most popular cosmetic work people would be happy to have was dentistry.

This demand has led to many dentists ‘cashing in’ on the boom without relevant experience, as there is no need for formal qualifications to carry out cosmetic work.

One of our clients found this out to her cost, as her veneers not only became discoloured months before her wedding, but twice cracked when she was eating.

It was only then that she discovered her teeth and gums were badly damaged as a result of the poor work of her dentist, and that it would cost her more than £7,000 – and five months of treatment – to put right.

It is therefore important to ask a dentist what experience and qualifications they have, how often they perform the cosmetic procedure in question, the common risks of the procedure, and what process is in place should something go wrong? Only go ahead with the work should you feel confident in all of these areas.

Look out for tell-tale signs of poor dental care

We’ve also represented clients who, despite religiously seeing dentists for years for check-ups and treatment, are still left suffering with gum disease and needing the removal of teeth.

Such problems can often only be discovered after a particular dentist retires or leaves. Many are left with widespread gum disease and the need to have a large number of teeth removed and replaced, at high cost.

Tell-tale signs of poor care could be a sudden need for a change in treatment, or the sudden need to remove a number of teeth.

In such a situation, it is important to ask questions as to why, given a history of treatment and assessments, such a change in a course of treatment has been required. If answers are not forthcoming, it could be worth seeking an independent opinion.

Equally, we have handled many cases where dentists have failed to inform patients of all options, often pushing them down the route of unnecessary, expensive treatment which has caused problems later down the line.

It may sound like scare-mongering, but it isn’t. Our work tells us dentists can’t always be relied upon to ensure your teeth and your oral hygiene are in the best health.

The message is, before you have your check-up at a dentist, do your own check-up on their background, the qualifications, and if you are having cosmetic work, their experience, training and cover.

£540,000 compensation paid to Hudgell Solicitors’ clients in past 12 months for sub-standard dentistry

Dental Negligence | Dental equipment for claims

According to the results of numerous surveys in recent years, the thing most people look at first when judging the appearance of others is their teeth.

Seven in 10 people said they looked for a nice smile in their ideal partner in one recent survey, while only 40 per cent said they looked for a good physique.

In the same survey, more than half of men said they notice a woman’s teeth first, and that a nice white smile was key to finding someone attractive.

You won’t be smiling if you fail to check-up on the risks of teeth whitening

smile with teeth

The desire to have a ‘celebrity smile’ has made teeth whitening one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the UK at present.

But should you scrimp on paying for a proper procedure by a qualified professional, smiling may be the last thing you feel like doing.

Recent research has suggested that many people are putting themselves at risk by choosing not to have the work carried out by a registered dental professional.

Instead, people are turning to unqualified beauty salons and therapists, who have seen the opportunity to cash in on the latest cosmetic trend.

According to a 5 Live Investigates report, The General Dental Council (GDC) has prosecuted 24 people this year – more than the entire of last year – for illegally offering teeth whitening services.

Unqualified to carry the work out themselves, some have been found to be selling teeth whitening kits – for as little as £50 – before talking customers through the procedure and allowing them to do it themselves.

Under the Dentists Act 1984, it’s illegal for anyone other than dentists or dental health professionals such as hygienists to carry out teeth whitening, and for very good reason.

Whilst the procedure is perfectly safe when carried out by a registered professional, as hydrogen peroxide is used to bleach teeth, permanent damage can be caused to teeth and gums, and chemical burns can be caused if mistakes are made.

The British Dental Association (BDA) has been clear in warning that anyone other than dental professionals won’t have the right training or knowledge, but with research suggesting that more than a third of adults have considered having their teeth whitened, more and more are making the mistake of not checking the legitimacy of those carrying out the work.

Those found to be breaking the law can, of course, face prosecution, and may be ordered to pay other costs including compensation to victims.

Unfortunately, through our work in supporting victims of dental negligence at Hudgell Solicitors, we all too often see how the dental profession is open to abuse by those looking to cash in on such trends.

We also see many patients who find themselves struggling to make claims for compensation following sub-standard treatment, as there is no legal requirement for dentists to have professional insurance.

We advise people to take great care and consideration when considering cosmetic dental work.

Firstly, make sure you choose a registered dentist, and ensure that they are qualified and have experience in the exact procedure you require (some take on procedures they have little experience in).

Most importantly, check that the dentist you use has insurance cover, as the pain will only be made worse by the possibility of having to foot the bill for any remedial work should anything go wrong.

Are we rushing into dental procedures?

dental check up

Recent studies have found that British women spend up to £100,000 on cosmetics in their lifetime, and so it comes as no surprise that many are now turning to cosmetic procedures for a more permanent alternative.

Despite 75% of people being concerned about a lack of information around cosmetic surgery, close to half say they would still go through with a procedure – even though the industry is notorious for being loosely regulated.
