Five figure sum awarded to South East man after repeated failure by his dentist to diagnose dental decay.
Our client, Mr D received £17,000 in compensation after his long-term dentist of 14 years repeatedly failed to perform routine procedures. Whenever we tend to visit the dentist, we put our complete trust in them as a professional and believe they are doing what is right for our oral health. However, this is not always the case which is what Mr D found when he became victim of dental negligence.
Between the years 1997 and 2011, Mr D regularly visited his usual dentist Dr A for routine check-ups, yet he never expected to have to make a claim against his dentist. Over the years, Mr D had to undergo a number of unnecessary treatments and procedures to improve his teeth due to decay going undetected.
After visiting regularly for over a decade, Dr A continued to disregard the state of Mr D’s teeth which resulted in the gradual deterioration of several teeth. Mr D was told he had to pay for additional procedures such as multiple root canal treatments and a costly lifetime of crown replacements.
If Dr A had picked up issues at an earlier stage, Mr D would now have a healthy set of teeth, yet the reality is that he is now faced with a lifetime of oral pain from a dental failure. At the Dental Law Partnership, we do our very best to put the smile back on your face and fight for the compensation you deserve. The successful win will hopefully pay for any restorative treatment needed and attempt to relieve the suffering Mr D will have to go through in the years to come.
