Protecting Dentists And Their Insurers From Dental Malpractice Liability

Dental malpractice claims begin with someone who is not satisfied with the outcome of procedures that can include:

  • General dentistry
  • Orthodontics
  • Endodontics
  • Periodontics

Claims can be based on dissatisfaction with cosmetic appearance, excessive pain, permanent damage and, in rare cases, fatalities.

A claim for dental malpractice must detail a departure from good and accepted standards of care and damages. We are skilled at building defenses that attack both of these legs of a case.

Was There A Departure From Good And Accepted Care?

Our decades of experience allows us to craft strong cases that are able to effectively attack the idea that there was a departure from good and accepted standards of care. We work with a wide pool of experts who can help us assert what the accepted standards of care are and how they were adhered to during the plaintiff's procedure. If the case does not offer positive opportunities for securing a victory for our clients through a denial of negligence, we can still rely on our ability to attack the issue of damages.

What Was The Harm Suffered?

Often with dental malpractice claims, clients may experience temporary discomfort. Even if they experience something that would be a permanent condition, dental procedures can often be rectified. We are highly skilled at reducing damages. We perform thorough analysis of medical records looking for previous conditions and other factors that can minimize our clients' potential exposure to liability.
