Sophie Angwin, recently acted for a 50-year old woman, who received £30,000 after her periodontal health was mismanaged between 1978 and 2013. The Claimant in this case had been a patient with the Defendant since she was 13 years old and it was not until she joined a new dental practice in 2013 that she was told that she had advanced and chronic periodontal disease.

This was a devastating diagnosis for the Claimant, particularly given the news that she would need to have 9 teeth extracted. Since the extraction of thee teeth, the Claimant has had 8 dental implants fitted at the cost of £11,000 in order to restore her dentition. Sophie Angwin was successful in securing her cost of this treatment back from the Defendant, together with additional funds to compensate the Claimant for her pain and suffering.
