Dental Malpractice Defense and Licensing Board Representation

The dental practice remains unique in all of healthcare. In most dental practices, the dentist is not only the provider of clinical care but is also responsible for running the business, making employment decisions and watching the bottom line. With the many responsibilities placed on the dentist, malpractice lawsuits and state dental board investigations are disruptive and costly. POLING understands dentistry.

Advanced dental treatment options and improved technology have led to more complex procedures and, correspondingly, greater scrutiny by the public and the profession. This has led to an increase in dental malpractice lawsuits. It is important to have someone on your side who understands the clinical practice of dentistry and the wide range of treatment modalities from the most common to the most complex.

The goal is to improve practices within the dental office so as to reduce the risk of litigation and board intervention. We provide consulting services in almost all regulatory matters ranging from infection control to advertising. In addition, POLING assists in resolving patient disputes so as to prevent litigation.
