Dental Negligence

Cheadle Solicitors

If you have received negligent treatment on the NHS or by a private dentist, for a failed dental procedure, or treatment performed on the wrong tooth, you may be eligible for compensation for the pain and suffering and the usually high associated costs for corrective treatment.
The governing body for dentists is the General Dental Council ( GDC) and you can start your complaint by contacting them directly.
The governing body will investigate a complaint against the professional concerned and if there has or could be harmful to patients, the professional concerned can be reprimanded, referred for training or if there is a serious or significant risk of harm, the individual can be ‘struck off’. Which means they will be banned from treating patients again. The governing body could also clear the professional of any wrongdoing following an investigation if no concerns are discovered.
Please note a complaint to a governing body will not lead to a financial settlement, a financial settlement is only received if you instruct a Solicitor to deal with your claim.
If you feel you may have been injured due to the actions (or lack of actions) of your dentist, you may be eligible to make a medical negligence claim.
