No one enjoys going to the dentist. And most of the time, going to the dentist is relatively benign. But when a dentist makes an error, and commits dental malpractice, the results can be tragic, not only from a cosmetic perspective, but from a functional one as well. We use our mouths to eat, so when our teeth don’t function correctly, we can have an aversion to food and not eat, which can lead to a whole host of medical issues.
Most commonly, dental malpractice occurs when a patient goes in for a dental procedure and something happens that is not at all expected and causes severe injuries, including nerve damage, loss of teeth, or cosmetic dentistry errors.
Especially in cosmetic dentistry offices, where dentists are paid significant amounts of money without having to bill insurance companies, the performance of unnecessary procedures is possible. Sometimes, a dentist will over-grind a patient’s teeth in connection with making veneers or will injure a nerve in the patient’s mouth, causing excruciating pain.
Dr. Kramer is not only a licensed lawyer in California, but he is also a licensed medical doctor, so he can evaluate medical injuries caused by a dental malpractice in a way that few lawyers can.
