Thank you for the post, while the action is not necessarily criminal, it does leave the dentist without recourse if the patient decides not to pay for the procedure or later seeks to invalidate the agreement to pay for the procedure citing the inability to enter into such an agreement via diminished capacity.

Relist: attorney missed point, more concerned with dentist getting paid then fact of not telling me before hand that ins co does not cover cap, instead gave me shot of narc. numb mouth ""THEN SAID THIS IS NOT COVERED PAY UP OR NOT TREATING YOU"".

Hello, to be clear, what remedy do you seek in your case?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
want to know if what she did is criminal, i belive she used the shot as leverage for me to ok the cap, being your numb already. if it is criminal , i will have her arested and push to have her lic. pulled by NYS.

No, it is not criminal.
