If the dentist told you that your daughter was injured by the treatment or lack thereof that she received in the ER, then you should consult with a local medical malpractice attorney. Good luck!

You wouldn't get enough money most likely to surpass the costs. I'm glad she is OK.

First of all, I'm sorry to hear about your little girl getting hurt, but it sounds like she will be ok. Since it does not appear that she has suffered any damages that were caused by the doctor, you probably do not have any good faith basis to file a lawsuit. Medical malpractice lawsuits are extremely expensive to properly investigate and file, and absent serious injury, a medical error is simply not worth pursuing.
