Dental malpractice contains a legal definition that differs from state to state. However, a vague definition of dental malpractice that applies for any state would be defined as medical malpractice for harm caused by a careless dental procedure, failure to recognize or properly treat potential dental problems and conditions, delayed diagnosis or care of dental disease or other precarious dental issues, in addition to any malicious or otherwise intentional negligence on the part of a dentist or other medical professional in the dental field, such as an oral hygienist or dentist assistant.
