Case Type: Dental Malpractice
Date of Case: 2008
Result: Six Figure Settlement
Case Summary: At the outset of Mr. B.’s treatment with Dr. C., he was not seeking, nor did he need full mouth reconstruction. However, when it became known to Dr. C. that Mr. B. was willing, and had the resources to pay for extensive treatment if it were necessary, Dr. C. proceeded to root canal every tooth and prepare and fit crowns for all Mr. B.’s teeth. On more than 30 occasions there are reports of crowns becoming loose and falling out, sometimes a crown for the same tooth 4 or 5 times. There were perforated root canals, pieces of instruments left, teeth split, chronic infection and infection into the bone.
The Case Resulted in a Six Figure Settlement
