People go to the dentist every day. In most cases, they leave with their dental issue resolved. But occasionally, dentists make a mistake. If you or a loved one has gone to the dentist and left in a worse condition than when you entered or if your dental issue was not resolved, please call the Greater Boston Dental Malpractice Attorneys at the Law Firm of Altman & Altman. Our years of experience in dental malpractice in Massachusetts will ensure you are fully compensated for your injury.
Dental malpractice takes place when a dentist, orthodontist, endodontist, oral surgeon, periodontist, or any other dental health care professional causes injury or in rare occasions death by misconduct or negligent behavior. Every dental health care professional has a duty of care to their patients. This ‘duty of care’ means that your dental health care professional’s actions (or lack of action) were reasonable given the circumstances of your dental issue. When a dental health care professional does not take appropriate action to solve your dental issue you should call a Boston dental malpractice attorney.
There are many situations that can be deemed as dental negligence. Some examples include: nerve injury, failure to detect oral disease, unnecessary removal of teeth, problems resulting from anesthesia, or failure to obtain informed patient consent. If you believe a dental health care professional has violated his or her duty of care give one of our experienced Boston dental malpractice lawyers call to discuss your case.
