    Negligent dentist accused of clinical failings

    By David Brown on August 9, 2014

    A dentist from Shrewsbury has been removed from the dentist’s register after negligent patient care and clinical failings. Robin Pope, who worked at Monkmoor Dental Surgery, faced a professional conduct committee hearing held by the General Dental Council. They discovered he provided a poor level of treatment to 11 of his patients between 2010 and 2012. This included prescribing antibiotics without examining the patient, failing to spot problems and poor record-keeping. He was also accused of making 31 dishonest payment claims.

    The hearing discovered Pope made “inadequate and barely legible notes” and in one case his negligence led to him extracting a patient’s teeth when he should have been referred to the hospital. He was also accused of failure to diagnose and treat a number of patients correctly. Whilst there were a number of positive patient testimonials citing Mr Pope as a ‘competent and caring dentist’, his name was erased from the dentist’s register.

    Dental negligence is a serious issue and if you or someone you love has been affected by this type of negligence, there is no point suffering in silence. It may be possible to make a claim for compensation, depending on the circumstances.

    Have you suffered from dental negligence?

    Going to the dentist is not a favourite activity for many people, but when we do go, we expect a professional standard of treatment. If the treatment you receive has fallen below your expectations, or you have been injured as a result of negligent dental treatment, claiming compensation may be an option. Misdiagnosis or failure to treat teeth and gums could lead to serious problems as well as pain and suffering. But there is no need to suffer in silence if you have been affected. Contact a personal injury lawyer, who will help you determine if you have been a victim of negligence.
