When we think of dentistry we think of teeth, naturally. However within the field of dentistry there are hundreds of specialised procedures and subspecialties which can often lead to court cases. A legal case which involves dentistry will often be brought about by medical malpractice, particularly when an error takes place during a surgical procedure. Minute errors can take acute action on the patient causing anything from severe discomfort to death. In any circumstance, it is understandable that a dentistry court case would be the outcome.
Cosmetic, reconstructive and restorative dentistry, as well as conventional routine dentistry can lead to risk of malpractice. Before any dental surgical procedure, every patient and guardian must be informed of all medical details, aftercare and risk, thus giving the patient opportunity to agree to the procedure. A dentistry expert witness may be called upon by the defence or prosecuting solicitor in order to examine and evaluate with whom fault lies in cases of malpractice, if with anyone at all.
Not only in cases of malpractice, a dentistry expert witness can be imperative to the identification of unnamed humans, or their remains. A forensic dentistry expert witness is able to use their specialist expertise to determine age, race, occupations, previous dental history and socioeconomic status of unidentified human beings.
In cases of attack or abuse, the forensic dentistry expert may be appointed to assist in the assessment of injury as a result of violence, for example in bite mark injuries either left on the victim by the attacker, or left on the attacker in an act of defence by the victim. Their experience in the dental industry can also be applied to cases of dog bite injuries.
