Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist breaches the acceptable standard of care or deviates from that standard of care, causing harm, damages and injuries to his or her patient. Dental malpractice is one of the subcategories of medical malpractice law, which means you may be entitled to sue your dentist, orthodontist, endodontist, oral surgeon, periodontist, or any other dental health care professional for providing treatment that is not in line with the acceptable medical standard of care.
