This may be considered supervised neglect.

What Is Dental Negligence?
Negligence occurs anytime a dentist carelessly treats your teeth or other conditions in your mouth. You are placing your trust in a dentist to fix or prevent any possible problems with your teeth. Dentists see dozens of patients daily and don’t always provide the proper care that they should when treating you.
Careless dental work can result in:
Misdiagnosis of dental issues
Failure to properly clean teeth and prevent damage
Unnecessary dental procedures
An improper dental implant or dental bridge
As you can see, negligence can result in something as small as a cavity, to as big as a life-threatening problem. Holding dentists accountable for these issues makes the entire dental community more aware of the importance of remaining vigilant in their duties.
