Dental Malpractice Attorneys

Were You Harmed During a Dental Procedure?

Dental Malpractice generally refers to an injury caused by a negligent dentist. Any kind of negligence or poor quality dentistry can be defined as dentist malpractice, which could result in a dental malpractice lawsuit.

Sadly, it can only take one act of negligence on the part of a South Carolina dentist to permanently harm a patient for life. Dental malpractice can occur if a dentist fails to diagnose or treat possible conditions such as oral cancer or other serious problems; delays diagnosis or treatment of oral disease or other precarious oral conditions or any intentional misconduct on the dental professional’s part.
