Inappropriate or Excessive Dental Treatment

Optimal health care requires good communication between patients and providers, yet barriers to provider-patient communication are common.

To provide all patients with the best possible care, providers must be able to understand patients’ diverse health care needs and preferences and communicate clearly with patients about their care. If dentists don’t conform to protocol they risk being negligent by inappropriate or excessive treatment.

 Inappropriate or excessive treatment can occur when:

  • Incorrect dosage of medication prescribed
  • Medication prescribed for too long
  • Wrong medication being prescribed or dispensed
  • Medication prescribed that contains ingredients that the patient is known to be allergic to
  • Medications prescribed that shouldn’t be prescribed together


(This list is not exhaustive) 

Prescription, medication and dispensing errors can have serious consequences including brain damage, allergic reaction, digestive problems and psychological illness.
