Dental/Oral Surgeon Malpractice

Dental cleanings and checkups occur every 6 months. Scheduled dental cleanings and help prevent the arrival of more serious health issues. Dentists are able to look out for signs of pre-tumors, tumors, or white patches inside your mouth. Dental physicians have a duty of care to their patients to warn them of potential serious medical issues. Early detection of serious medical problems is crucial to maintaining good health. Oral surgeons may also be held liable for mistakes such as failing to identify signs of serious medical problems.

If you are a victim of dental malpractice, contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. A medical malpractice attorney will help establish a solid case for medical malpractice on your behalf, by providing proof that your dentist had either unintentionally or intentionally failed to provide an adequate standard of care that another reasonable oral health care provider would have provided. Dental work does not assure guarantees and patients that are simply dissatisfied with their dentist’s work do not have the right to sue. However, if dentists treated you without obtaining your informed consent, this is grounds to sue for medical malpractice.

We went to Bellotti Law for help with a car injury to a pedestrian in a hospital parking garage. Peter is very low-key and calm, but know well how the system works and got us an excellent settlement through persistence, and helping us to track the effects of the injury and its future potential effects. He made a very strong case, and held out for a great settlement… I highly recommend him for his calm persistence, intelligence and experience in personal injury cases. Paul F.
