Dental malpractice pertains to an injury as a direct result of negligent dental work or a failure to diagnose or sufficiently and accurately treat a dental condition. Dental malpractice can also refer to intentional misconduct on the part of a dentist. In layman’s terms, every patient is entitled to a standard of care that is typical of the standard any other dentist would offer. Potential catastrophic dental procedures can include loss of nerve sensation, loss of the ability to taste, oral surgery error, persistent difficulty in speaking following a dental procedure, sustained difficulty in eating subsequent to a dental procedure or Temporomandibular Joint disorder.
