Dental Medical Malpractice

When a person seeks advice or services from a professional, they expect a certain standard of performance. When the performance level doesn't meet the standard, a person can file a case claiming the professional failed to comply with the accepted standards. In other words, the professional was negligent in the performance of their duties. This negligence is what is referred to as malpractice. It is an area of law that is open to much controversy. It is also considered by many as a major contributor to the overall rise in the cost of medical care.

What is Dental Medical Malpractice?

Dental medical malpractice is generally easier to deal with than medical malpractice dealing with a doctor, nurse, hospital, etc. The primary reason is that the majority of dental procedures deal with what can be called standard techniques, equipment, and drugs. All these have been well tested and documented before being implemented in the dentist's office. Also it is much easier to determine whether an injury was the direct result of a dentist being careless or not.

After all, if you go to the dentist to have a tooth pulled and the wrong one is pulled, it isn't hard to prove carelessness. Or if after a wisdom tooth extraction you get a bad infection because of improper medication that too is fairly easy to determine. Another common area which can result in dental medical malpractice is if the dentist fails to determine if the patient has any medical allergies. As a result the dentist prescribes a drug which causes an allergenic reaction requiring treatment by a medical doctor.
