Dental malpractice claims generally allege:
- Preventable infection
- Negligent extractions
- Nerve damage
- Anesthesia complications
- Failure to diagnose periodontal disease
- Failed implants, bridge and crowns
No matter what the nature of the allegations, being accused of malpractice is understandably upsetting. If nor properly handled, it could lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages and disciplinary action.
