Dental Assistant Malpractice

If you are a victim of dental malpractice because of bad treatment by a dental assistant, you may be entitled to compensation. Dental procedures have inherent hazards, therefore the success of certain kinds of dental treatment is unpredictable. There’s sometimes a minor infection or other issues that can be addressed. In certain circumstances, a dental blunder might result in significant, long-term injuries that are highly painful and uncomfortable.

Dental assistants will have certain responsibilities to protect your health and safety. These obligations include following the same standards of practice as another dental assistant in comparable situations. A dentist’s assistant will be responsible for conducting thorough examinations and cleanings, detecting problems, and suggesting appropriate therapies. If anything goes wrong as a result of your care that hurts you as a patient, it may be considered negligence.

The greatest way to find out whether you have a dental assistant malpractice claim is to consult with an experienced dental malpractice lawyer about your legal rights to financial compensation. Working with Texas Personal Injury Lawyers might make the claims procedure go more smoothly. Schedule a free consultation with us today to learn what legal options are available to you.

Dental assistant malpractice can be excruciating. It might cause you to stop doing basic activities, such as eating or sleeping. In certain situations, your injuries may even be life-altering. All dental practitioners have a legal obligation of care to keep you safe. This is their duty toward you, to ensure that they exercise reasonable caution so as not to do you harm.

What Is Considered Malpractice For A Dental Assistant?


If you’re curious about what constitutes malpractice for a dental assistant, we’ve provided some examples below.

  • Negligent Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is frequently done to cure tooth decay, a leaking filling, or an infection resulting from damaged teeth.

In the majority of cases, the operation is successful. However, dental assistant negligence may result in injuries such as broken teeth and dental instrument residue, as well as failure to remove all infected germs before putting on the crown. If your dental assistant provided a substandard level of care that resulted in any of these issues, you may be able to claim compensation.

  • Oral Cancer Misdiagnosis

Oral cancer (otherwise known as mouth cancer) is the sixth most prevalent malignancy in the world. It manifests with mouth ulcers, lumps in the mouth or neck, loose teeth, numbness, and red or white patches. The condition must be identified and treated as soon as possible to avoid further problems. If you presented these symptoms to your dental assistant and he or she was unable to identify or delay your treatment, you may be entitled to compensation.

  • Incorrect Fitting Of A crown Or Bridges

Crowns are used to repair damaged teeth and give them extra strength and protection. Bridges are tooth-shaped constructions that take the place of teeth that have been lost. If they aren’t installed correctly, they might cause discomfort or not last as long as they should. If your crown or bridge was put in incorrectly, you should contact Texas Personal Injury Lawyers to file a dental assistant malpractice claim.

  • Mistakes During Oral Surgery

All of the dangers should be explained to you in detail before your dental surgery so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed.

If you were harmed during surgery and were not informed of the danger, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. You could also receive compensation if your dental assistant made a mistake while performing oral surgery on you.

How Much Compensation Could I Receive?


The amount you receive as a result of your dental negligence pay-out is determined by the severity and intricacy of your individual situation, so there is no set amount to anticipate. When developing your dental assistant malpractice claim, your lawyer will ensure that they are aware of the consequences of your injuries on you and those around you. This is so they can ensure that you receive all of the compensation you need and are entitled to.

Dental assistant malpractice may have caused you to take time off work, which has resulted in missed income. If you’ve had to pay for dental treatment to correct your injuries, it’s quite possible that you won’t be able to pay your bills, including resulting medical expenses. When working on your case, our dental lawyer will consider this.

The consequences of your accident on your family should also be considered by our dental lawyer. For example, the compensation might cover their travel and lodging expenses as well as the time they’ve spent caring for you.

We understand that spending time at home recuperating may be lonely and distressing, and it might appear as if you will never recover your independence. Even if you’re not able to work, compensation can help you get back on your feet and start living life again – or as close to that as possible. Give us a call at (888) 997-2148 now to see if you qualify for compensation.
