What is Dental Negligence?
In essence, a dentist would be negligent if they provided you with treatment that fell below the minimum standard of care or skill. The dentist is therefore judged by the standard of the average competent dentist. You will need to show that the dentist did not exercise the professional standard set by the British Dental Association and/or the Dental Practice Board.
Having established that a breach of duty has occurred, i.e. the dentist has acted (or failed to act) in a way which was substandard, the Claimant must prove that the breach of duty caused 'damage'. The burden of proof lies with the Claimant to prove his or her claim and the Claimant will need to prove his or her case 'upon the balance of probabilities' i.e. a greater than 50% chance.
