QUEENS DENTAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEYS

Dentists owe a duty of care to their patients.  They must advise them about procedures that are necessary to maintain their dental health and their general health.  Specialist referrals are also very important.  A dentist that notices gum disease should refer the patient to a periodontist in a timely manner so that that periodontal disease does not progress into tooth loss.  Teeth that cannot be saved might need to be pulled.  Cost is often an issue as most people do not have dental insurance, but that should not impact the dentist’s work.  If a patient cannot afford the treatment the dentist recommends, they can be referred to a teaching hospital or clinic.  If you have suffered from the improper dental care you should contact Queens Dental Malpractice Attorneys to discuss your options.
