Whilst receiving dental treatment a piece of metal (probably from a needle) was left in our client's gum which was causing her a great deal of pain and discomfort.
She had to undergo a procedure to remove the metal which involved making an incision in the gum. Unfortunately, this left her with a large dent where the metal was located and caused this area of her gum to become numb to any sensation.
The claim was referred to Dental Protection, the professional body that deals with all claims on behalf of dentists. After some negotiation, the case was settled and our client was awarded compensation plus her expenses involved with pursuing the claim.
"Trethowans are absolutely fantastic. I had used them before this case and they were so lovely I went back. They were wonderful; Chris [Whiteley] was great and kept me up to date throughout the whole process." - Mrs Roberts, Southampton
