Greetings, Geeks. I was out in Chicago on business and the topic came up about a California dentist who is suing an implant manufacturer:

I read what I could on the case – I think all Dental Geeks should read it, too. Would love to hear your feedback.

Situation:

Dentist places lots of implants over a two-year period.

In the two years, he has 12 patients with failure.

He”repairs” mishaps free of charge.

Dentist sues implant manufacturer.

Case pending.

I am so jaded that my first thought was, “It’s not the product, it’s the ability. I mean, the Egyptians were putting seashells in people’s mouths as teeth thousands of years ago!”

Another exercise:

Google the following: Dental Lawsuit

Page after page after page of current lawsuits/cases: Patient suing dentist, dentist suing manufacturer, specialty law firms that focus on dental malpractice.

Geesh,  it’s making my head spin.
