Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist renders treatment to you that is below the standard of care. Injuries sustained as a result of dental malpractice are devastating and traumatic and can have lifelong consequences. You deserve to be compensated for your injuries and the Hardwick Law Office has the experience to represent you in your case. Our office helps the whole patient: by securing settlements to cover the costs of repair and retreatment and by advocating for you while you heal from your physical, mental, and emotional suffering.
