"Endodontics and the Law"

Louis H. Berman, DDS, FACD

Of all dental procedures, endodontic treatment has had the most dental malpractice claims filed, mainly involving cases directed against general dentists. These claims revolve around breaches in the standard of care with regard to informed consent, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care. The purpose of this presentation is to elucidate the typical problems associated with endodontic care so as to help prevent the catastrophe and misfortune of a dental malpractice claim.


  • To understand the definition of what is meant by the standard of care
  • To understand what is required with regard to proper informed consent
  • To be able to describe how to document a proper diagnosis
  • To understand the most common procedural mishaps in endodontics and how to avoid them
