No one really enjoys going to the dentist, but dental hygiene is very important. Getting treatment early helps prevent cavities from forming and teeth from being lost later on. If you have a good dentist the process may not actually be as hard as it would be normally.
Very few things will ever go wrong at a dental surgery. However, you would expect the premises to be in good condition to make sure you are never in any danger of being hurt while you are there. For example, you wouldn’t want to trip over a loose section of carpet while on your way in or out of the surgery, just because it hadn’t been fitted properly.
A duty of care
The owner of a dental surgery must make sure the premises are safe at all times. No one should be in any danger while attending an appointment at a surgery, or while going in to book one or to get some advice. Thankfully there are never that many people who find themselves having problems of some kind because they have had an accident at a dental surgery.
Dental surgery injury compensation can be paid out for injuries that should have been prevented and were not caused by the individual claiming, but instead were caused by someone else. It is uncommon for a dental surgery to be negligent, but as we all know, things can sometimes happen that were entirely avoidable.
