Our client (now aged 42) regularly attended the same dentist from adolescence. She had always been fully compliant with treatment recommendations.During a routine check-up, she was told that she needed to be referred to a Periodontist for a specialist opinion. The Periodontist informed her that she had severe gum disease which was a result of not being detected or treated at an earlier date by her dentist, and this had caused extensive bone loss. As a result of this neglect, our client risked losing up to five teeth and she required substantial restorative treatment.

S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £47,500 for this client in 2015.
