Misdiagnosis by Your DentistHave you been the victim of negligent care?
Misdiagnosed by Dentist
Like with any other form of misdiagnosis from a medical professional, dental misdiagnosis can mean that you’re unable to access the treatment you need as and when you need it. This could lead to unnecessary pain, suffering and stress and will result in your dental problem getting worse. This may also mean that the treatment you require will be more severe and possibly more traumatic.
Dentists, just like any other medical professional, have a duty to provide the highest standards of care to their patients. While visiting the dentist can, for many, be an unpleasant experience, we naturally put our trust in our dentist to assess and investigate our symptoms and recommend the right treatment for us. We rarely question our dentist’s diagnosis. Regrettably, dental negligence can happen.
