Dental Misdiagnosis Negligence

Misdiagnosis’ in the context of Dental negligence is a preventable adverse effect of dental care. It occurs when a Dentist or orthodontist provides an inappropriate method of care or technique and/or fails to provide correct care and/or improperly executes a method of care. In other words the dental professional gets the diagnosis of a condition totally wrong.

If the Dentist misdiagnoses a condition it can have a long lasting effect on a patient’s teeth or health.

Misdiagnosis can also occur when a Dentist fails to diagnose a dental condition completely, such as gum disease, leading to unnecessary suffering, pain and expense.

Dental negligence can be very painful physically and emotionally and can leave you in a position where you lose trust in the treating Dentist leaving you with nowhere to turn. It could also cost you lots of money to repair or remedy a problem.

The most commons complications which seem to occur are:

  • Dentist failing to investigate symptoms which have led to severe adverse effects, even allowing the condition to become terminal or potentially terminal
  • Dentist failing to refer patients for specialist dental advice
  • Misreporting making errors when reviewing diagnostic scans i.e. x-rays
  • The Dentist failing identify and diagnose adverse dental conditions
  • Providing the incorrect treatment
  • Misread test results and provision inaccurate advice

If you consider that you have been let down, suffered injury and emotional distress as a result of a failed or inaccurate diagnosis of a condition, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
