Dental Standards of Care

Unlike Standards for most non-professional skills [like driving a car-->where laws establish the rules of the road;  a lay person is deemed capable of determining when they have been violated; the law generally delegates the settling of detailed professional standards to members of various professions. 

Medical/Dental practice or malpractice standards are drawn in large part from the customs and behavior of the members of the profession.  An EXPERT WITNESS must establish a standard for medical/dental care and give an opinion on whether the defendants conduct met this standard [the standard must be general and specific to the individual plaintiffs circumstances] and ideally should be supported by uncontroverted scholarly literature.  (Ref: “LectricLawLibrary”)

NOTE: A general practitioner who provides specialty services to patients may be held to the same standards that a specialist would be held if the specialist had provided the services.

I retained Dr. Harold Nemetz as a dental expert in _ v.USA. The case hinged on whether Mr. Unin's dentist exercised the degree of care ordinarily exercised during a tooth extraction. Dr. Nemetz took pains to educate me on the nature of teeth and gums and relevant standard of care, all of which helped immensely. And during his trial testimony, he presented as professional, knowledgeable, unbiased and forceful.
I would recommend Dr. Nemetz to other personal injury attorneys as he is very approachable, engaged and knowledgeable. He was an asset to our case.
