A visit to the dentist is rarely a pleasurable experience. Oral treatments and surgeries, while necessary, have a reputation for being extremely uncomfortable. But negligent dental care takes such discomfort to another level. When dentists make critical mistakes, the consequences are incredibly painful, and often dangerous. Dental negligence can turn routine procedures into severe health and safety concerns.
