Careless and Negligent Dental Work
Most Dental Claims are due to carelessness and/or negligent dental work. When we visit the dentist, many people find the experience overwhelming or foreboding. We make the decision to go through with the treatment due to necessity and placing your trust in the expertise of the dentist. In most situations, this trust is rightly placed, but occasionally things can go wrong due to carelessness or negligence. Carelessness can arise in a variety of situations, for example, placing an instrument in a dangerous place, or accidentally treating the wrong tooth. The negative outcome can be varied depending on the work done, but includes:
- Additional treatment being required
- Nerve damage
- Time Commitment
It is imperative that your dentist keeps you informed about the work they are carrying out, particularly with regard to your options, self-care and any risks involved. In order to determine whether there has been negligent it is important to know whether you could have reasonably expected a different standard of service.
For more specific areas of careless or negligent dental work, please read on.
It can be difficult to know if you have suffered from Dental Negligence, or whether the outcome would have been the same with the best care. Please Contact Us to discuss your case, and how we will investigate it on a No Win No Fee basis.

I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
