Dental Negligence

Dental Negligence – We’re Here To Help

You only have one set of teeth! A lack of appropriate treatment, particularly over time, is likely to create more serious dental problems that can manifest over time. Attwood Solicitors, Personal Injury Specialists, believe no one should suffer from negligent treatment, and this extends to dental care. Corrective treatment for poor or wrong treatment can require corrective and/or ongoing treatment that is not only painful, but expensive. If you have suffered Dental Negligence as a result of poor dental care and treatment then you could be entitled to compensation. At Attwood Solicitors we can make the process as straightforward and stress free as possible on a no win, no fee basis.

What is Dental Negligence?

Negligence occurs if you have received sub-standard treatment from a dentist. Dental Negligence has potentially occurred if:


  • You are repeatedly suffering with a dental problem and your dentists are engaging with minimal discussion and/or providing treatment that is ineffective.
  • You consider the treatment you received was provided without alternative options being discussed with you.
  • You were not informed of any risks.
  • Following your treatment your symptoms persist.
  • You left the dental surgery without a clear understanding of the cause of your symptoms.
  • You had a missed or false diagnosis which has led to a worsened condition.
  • You received careless dental work and/or poor standards of hygiene

All areas of dental treatment can encounter dental negligence, they include but are not limited to:

  • Oral Surgery, including extractions
  • Neglect and resulting dental decay
  • Crowns & Bridges
  • Root Canal Treatments
  • Gum Disease
  • Cosmetic Procedures including veneers
  • Orthodontic Treatment

You can Contact Attwood Solicitors for a no obligation, free, consultation to discuss any of the above and to find out whether you have suffered Dental Negligence.

What Compensation Will I Receive?


In a nutshell, you are entitled to compensation for:

  • Your pain and suffering: both physical and psychological
  • The cost of past and ongoing corrective treatment
  • Any past or future financial losses resulting from your injury, such as loss of earnings
  • Needing to recover costs if the consequences of the Dental Negligence have left you unable to undertake tasks you previously completed yourself, and now need someone else to undertake these
