Dental Malpractice Claims

Over the past five years, the number of dental malpractice cases in New York have risen dramatically. In order to make a case for dental malpractice, the dental care provider must have committed an act that no other reasonable, prudent oral healthcare provider would have performed, resulting in serious injury. A dentist must also obtain your informed consent before administering any treatment.

Dental malpractice can take many forms, including dentists failing to treat oral cancers and cysts, misusing analgesics, anesthetics, antibiotics and sedatives, and more. Some of the most common dental malpractice cases that warrant the services of a New York dental malpractice lawyer involve the following:

  • Facial paralysis
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Dental-related surgical errors
  • Root canal errors
  • Chronic pain
  • Lifelong impairments
  • Various infections
  • Injury to the tongue, jaw, chin, and lips
  • Numbness or loss of taste
  • Wrongful death resulting from dental procedures or oral surgery
