Here are the most common reasons dental claims are made:
- Complications the patient claims were never explained;
- Nerve injuries after injections, root canal therapy, extractions or surgical procedures;
- Retreatments within a short time resulting in more fees;
- Collection actions for outstanding balances;
- Failure to diagnose, provide a full treatment plan or explain treatment options;
- Poor people skills that impact all the above.
