Can I sue my dental office for negligence?
Doctor Answers 2
I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with your dentist. There are many ways to handle this situation besides a law suit. It sounds as if you have switched dentists, I suggest returning to the original dentist and having a discussion about your current situation. Most dentists are willing to make the situation right for the patient. This may come in the form of reimbursement for treatment performed or treatment needed. If this is not an option the local dental society may have a peer review or dispute resolution system in place. Rarely is a law suit necessary to settle a situation such as yours. I hope this information is helpful.
