Portland Dental Malpractice Lawyer

Claims Against Dentists or Oral Surgeons

At Paulson Coletti, we accept cases we believe in — cases we believe we can win. Dental cases can be as expensive as medical negligence cases but the damages are often less. In the case of dental malpractice, we only accept cases involving serious injuries. Our selectivity is to your benefit.

We have handled cases of nerve damage in the mouth (lingual nerve and inferior alveolar nerve), wisdom tooth extraction malpractice, dental implants, broken jaws, TMJ damage, and drill mishaps. Due to our commitment to accepting only meritorious cases, Paulson Coletti has a reputation for integrity and honesty, giving our clients an additional reason to trust in our team.
