If a specialist extracted a tooth too roughly and caused me to get a dry socket and be in pain do I have a case?

A few days after the extraction I called the doctor and told him I was in pain, bleeding profusely, and swollen. I called because I suspected something was wrong and I wanted to get it checked out and the doctor told me not to worry about it that this was normal. A few days later I was bleeding again and still in pain so I called again and the same doctor was out of town. I then called my dentist and they told me to come in right away. My dentist told me I had a bad extraction on the socket that was dry. I had to pay out of my own pocket because my insurance couldn’t cover any more.
