Has Your Oral Hygiene Been Neglected by a Dental Professional?
Dentists are medical professionals, and as such they are held to certain standards of expected care. For example, they are expected to thoroughly complete dental procedures and to accurately diagnose and treat dental conditions. One of a dentist’s primary duties is to maintain the oral health of their patients by looking out for potential dental problems before they have a chance to cause damage. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen, and patients suffer preventable losses.
If you go to your dentist for regular cleanings and still experience oral health issues that your doctor should have identified and treated, you may have a dental malpractice case grounded in supervised neglect. At The Law Offices of Fred B. Goldberg, PC, we represent clients who have suffered injury as a result of a dental professional’s failure to treat an oral health issue. We handle all types of negligent dentistry cases, including those involving:
- Missed diagnosis of oral cancer
- Improper dental implants
