Have You Been Affected by Dental Malpractice?
One of the most typical types of dental malpractice is the misdiagnosis of a patient’s oral cancer. Typically, this type of cancer will show up as an ulcer on the floor of a patient’s mouth. When a dentist fails to biopsy an ulcer and make the correct diagnosis promptly, this can significantly minimize your chance for successful treatment.
