Dental malpractice is defined as an injury that occurred as a direct result of negligent dental work, the failure to treat or diagnose potentially harmful oral conditions, delayed diagnosis or treatment of potentially harmful oral conditions or malevolent or intentional misconduct by a licensed doctor of dental science. In order for a person to have a valid dental malpractice claim, the dentist or one of his or her staff must have committed an act that directly or indirectly caused injury that no other reasonable, prudent oral healthcare provider would have committed during the same period.

A person can only bring a dental malpractice lawsuit against a dental professional if the dentist violates the generally accepted standards of dental care and if that person suffered an injury through intentional misconduct, negligence or incompetence.

The best way to determine how and when to pursue a dental malpractice claim is to consult with an experienced California dental malpractice attorney and have him or her review the specific details of the incident. The attorney will be able to determine whether you have been a victim of dental malpractice and the best ways to hold the dentist responsible and prevent him or her from causing harm to anyone else. A dental malpractice lawyer will also be able to advise you of the statute of limitations for a dental malpractice claim. If your claim is not filed within the statutory guidelines set forth in the state code, you will forever lose your right to pursue legal action against the dentist for your injuries.
