Dental Negligence

We all need to visit the dentist from time to time, whether privately or on the NHS. But sometimes, that winning smile we want can come at a significant cost.

Our dental negligence solicitors understand the devastating impact poor dental treatment can have, both physically and psychologically.

If you, or a family member has suffered injury as a result of substandard dental treatment, the specialist negligence team at Slater Heelis can establish whether you can claim for compensation.

As with all healthcare professionals, dental practitioners have a duty of care to provide safe, appropriate treatment at all times. This covers the provision of suitable professional advice and alternate treatment options, particularly in relation to oral hygiene, specialist referral and adequate aftercare.

When this standard of care is not met, and you suffer as a consequence, it’s only right that you should be compensated – and it’s our job to ensure that happens.

We draw on decades of experience handling negligence claims relating to tooth loss; tooth decay; root canal treatment; periodontal disease (both gum disease and bone loss); and dental implantology including crowns and bridges.
