New York attorney for dental malpractice
Like medical malpractice, dental malpractice is a case against a dental professional who acted in a careless, negligent or reckless manner, and caused harm to the patient. Negligence can be defined as the lack of use of that degree of attention that a reasonable person would have used in the same circumstances and dental professionals have a duty not only to protect, but also to provide the level of attention to their position demands. .
The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm is familiar with the many mistakes that dental professionals can make and we know that injuries can cause significant harm. We will do everything possible to help you get the maximum amount of money you deserve. We can even reach you at your home, hospital or work. If you do not have a doctor for your treatment because of your injury, we may be able to find doctors who can treat you and without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.

- Nerve injuries that affect the patient’s ability to taste

- Complications arising from crowns and bridges carelessly completed
