What is dental negligence?

Dental negligence is where patients are harmed because they have received poor dental care from a professional. Everyone should feel safe when in the hands of their dentist. We understand how distressing it can be to suffer negligence or misdiagnosis following dental treatment. Our medical and dental negligence solicitors strive to get you the best possible compensation for the issues you’ve experienced.

“Very professional, helpful, nothing is too much of a problem. Definitely company to which I'll return in the case of another accident.”

JK, gosport
