Heather acted for the Claimant in this dental negligence claim where the Defendant had failed to diagnose, treat adequately, monitor adequately and maintain adequately the Claimant’s periodontal condition. The result was that the Claimant would lose all her upper teeth and would require complex remedial treatment involving bone grafting and implants. She also suffered psychological injury. Shortly after serving the Particulars of Claim and Schedule of Loss, and before the Defendant entered a Defence, the Defendant agreed to settle the claim for £80,000.
