Medical negligence compensation claims arising out of dental and orthodontic treatment are our expertise

Dentists, orthodontists, dental and oral surgeons owe the same duty of care to their patients as any other medical professional or healthcare provider and are required to exercise reasonable skill and care in the provision of treatment to their patients.

Do dentists, orthodontists, dental and oral surgeons owe a duty of care to their patients?

The duty of care owed by practitioners who carry out orthodontic and dental treatment is the same as of any other medical practitioner or health care provider. They are required to exercise reasonable skill and care in provision of treatment to you. This involves taking all available and necessary precautions to avoid any harm or injury to a patient. When this “duty” is breached it can have devastating consequences and result in numerous ongoing disabilities.
