Ali Cloak, solicitor in the Dental Negligence Team, acted for a 52 year old woman, who received £2,000 following the inappropriate preparation of a composite inlay on her tooth. The Defendant dentist replaced large amalgam fillings on two of the Claimant’s teeth and in preparing one of the teeth the Defendant encroached on the mesial pulp chamber.

This resulted in the need for the Claimant to undergo a root canal treatment and crown placement. The Claimant also suffered pain from both of these teeth after the inlays were fitted. The Defendant failed to carry out appropriate investigations on these teeth and failed to provide the appropriate treatment to relieve the Claimant’s pain and suffering.
