Injuries from Failed Root Canals

Maryland Dental Malpractice Lawyers

Like doctors, dentists take an oath to safeguard the health and safety of their patients. Part of this oath includes the acceptance that there may be times when a dentist will have to turn to colleagues and other dental specialists for help. Unfortunately, some dentists do not consult with specialists and attempt to perform complex procedures, such as root canals, that may be outside the scope of their expertise. This often results in dental malpractice.
