Faced with a judicial system that suffers from a lack of laws and jurisprudence governing the liability of doctors in general and dentists in particular, and in the absence of a medical liability law to protect them, dentists are faced with a patient who is aware of his rights, believes in the omnipotence of science, is becoming increasingly demanding of the medical profession, and has difficulty accepting medical accidents.

The aim of this paper is to discuss, through the study of an accidental injection of sodium hypochlorite case report, the dentist's obligations towards his patient and his responsibility in the event of medical malpractice.

This is no more than an attempt to understand the judicial spiral, so that we can be informed and aware of the judicial system, whose language may seem too complex for a dentist.
