Why dental malpractice exists

Blog submitted by Dane Levy, Attorney of Dentalmal.com, a provider of legal services for those injured by dental malpractice in California

Many professions require extensive training and education before someone is certified to work in the field. Some of these jobs include airplane pilots, lawyers, and medical professionals such as dentists. The reason why these occupations require so much study and practice is because an average layperson who does not have the right knowledge or training could seriously harm or impair a customer if they try to provide these services.

Medical duties are some of the most important services a professional can provide in our society. Being in charge of someone’s health and body can be a matter of life and death, and not administering the right treatment can greatly reduce a patient’s quality of life. That is why it is important to ensure that all medical professionals are following their training and not putting their patients at risk by acting negligently.

This is especially true of dental professionals. Some people may view a visit to the dentist as a simple, routine part of their lives, but dentists acting negligently have had devastating, lasting effects on their patients’ health, including dental implant nerve injury, major infections, and wrongful deaths. If your dentist has harmed you by acting carelessly during dental treatments, you may be liable to sue for dental malpractice.

Malpractice lawsuits ensure that victims of dental negligence are rightly compensated for their injuries and that all dental professionals are following their training and meeting the accepted standard of care.
