Going to the dentist was scary when we were younger. And that’s because we didn’t really know any better. However, now that we are of age and we are adults that are presumably aware of our rights, going to the dentist no longer has to be as scary as it used to be. If you have a skilled and competent dentist, then a root canal overfill or a numb lip due to local anesthesia should not be cause for you to be scared – not even a little bit. However, if you find or feel that something is off, or that something does not feel right, do not be afraid to voice out your concerns. After all, you are paying good money for your dentist’s services. You, then, deserve the right to know what’s going on. If you are able to determine that your dentist has been negligent in his duties or that he has been taking advantage of you, then you need to do something about it. Do not take this sitting down because it’s your welfare that we are talking about here. Dental malpractice is enough cause for you to go to court and seek damages for any mistakes committed by your dentist. Because their profession is impressed with public interest, your dentist owes it to you to exercise his profession to the best of his ability. It also becomes the duty of the dentist to ensure that you get the service that you are seeking to have performed.
