What Is Dental Malpractice?
The law says that dentists in Florida must provide an appropriate level of care to their patients. When a dentist’s work falls below the legal standard of care, and his or her carelessness injures a patient, the dentist may be liable for malpractice. There are many types of injuries to dental patients that might be malpractice. Some examples are:
- Performing unnecessary dental procedures
- Failing to diagnose or treat oral health conditions
- Failing to get informed consent before performing a procedure
- Improperly extracting teeth
- Not treating or inadequately treating complications of procedure
- Improperly administering anesthesia
