One question that I am asked every now and then by potential clients in Norwich, Connecticut is whether special rules apply to dental malpracctice cases.  Sometimes people assume that dental malpractice cases are different from medical malpractice cases.  I frequently explain that they are not different, and that the same rules apply.  

The first step is to get the medical records.  

Second, no case can be brought until a medical expert certifies that dental malpractice has been committed.  

Third, the medical expert must be the same kind of dentist as the potential defendant.  That means if the potential defendant is an oral surgeon, you need to have a certification from another oral surgeon.
