What is Dental Malpractice?
Dental Malpractice Information
Dental malpractice may occur when a dental provider fails to properly diagnose or treat an oral health condition, causing significant injury or death. The negligent conduct that can lead to a dental malpractice case can include, among other things: failing to diagnose a disease; delaying diagnosis of a disease; making surgical procedure errors; and failing to properly treat an oral health condition. In order for a person to have a malpractice claim that dental lawyers would regard as viable, the provider must have done an act that a reasonable and prudent oral health care provider would not have done, and that act must have caused significant injury. Dental malpractice cases and dental product liability claims are often complex and require an experienced dental malpractice attorney to understand and present the facts of the injury in order to make the necessary links between the negligent act and actual injury.
Document Your Treatment
In proving a dental malpractice case, it is very helpful to have documented written evidence which can be presented to help prove the claim. The more evidence that is documented, the more credibility the dental malpractice claim usually has. Therefore, it is important for an injured patient to document bad dental care as it occurs and the related symptoms and injuries.

Documenting such things can have several benefits. In a dental malpractice claim, it gives weight and credibility to the injured patient's version of events.

Also, you should document your injury and complaints on all dental and medical health history forms at all subsequent dental providers you visit after the injury. Documenting the events not only means to keep a written journal of what is happening, but also to ask all (present and subsequent) dental care and medical providers to chart symptoms, injuries and events which are important.

Keeping a journal will also help remind you of the events, symptomology and what occurred. When documenting the events and symptoms for example, it is important to portray your actions in an effort to be helpful and understanding. You do not want the defense lawyer to be able to argue that you were attempting to "build" a case against them from the beginning.
