What is Dental Malpractice?

Law Firm News

Dental malpractice occurs when the treatment provided by dental health care professionals falls below the acceptable standard of care causing serious personal injuries. Like other areas of professional malpractice, dental malpractice is a form of negligence. Dentists are usually working hard to make sure that their patients are well cared for, but there are far too many mistakes that could have been prevented. In fact, it has been estimated that 1 out of every 7 medical malpractice cases directly involves a dental malpractice issue. A dental healthcare provider is not negligent simply because the intended result was not achieved or because the procedure resulted in an injury. It needs to be shown that the provider actually acted negligently under the circumstances. In a dental malpractice claim, it must be shown that the dental provider fell below what is called “the standard of care.” That is to say, the dental provider failed to act as a reasonable and prudent dental healthcare provider would under the circumstances. In court, this can only be proven through the testimony of dental or medical experts – other providers who do the same or similar procedures. New York Dental Malpractice Attorney, Jordan R.
