My legal practice as a dental malpractice attorney focuses on obtaining compensation for victims of dental malpractice. While there are many forms of dental malpractice, the most common types involve negligently performed cosmetic and restorative dental treatment. Dental malpractice lawyers can pursue these cases only within the first two and one-half years after the incident.

Dental malpractice is a failure to exercise the skill, care and diligence ordinarily possessed by and required of dentists in the locality where the dentist practices. I represent clients involved in a wide range of New York dental malpractice issues, including:

  • fabricating negligent bridges, crowns, laminates or veneers
  • improperly placed dental implants
  • failed dental implants
  • removing excessive tooth structure for placement of dental crowns, veneers and bridges
  • failing to treat tooth decay
  • negligent composite fillings and restorations
  • dental treatment that causes TMJ injury
  • performing improper root canal treatment
  • placing dental implants that have a poor prognosis for success
  • not using the correct number of dental implants
  • not correctly spacing dental implants
  • using the incorrect type of dental implants
  • using improper surgical technique for implant placement
