I'm a patient at A Dental School in Boston. I had a crown

Customer Question

Hello, I'm a patient at A Dental School in Boston. I had a crown put on wrong and lost my tooth, many complications and time trying to save the tooth over years! I originally went to the Dental School for one implant and ended up needing two due to the bad crown. I talked to the patient advocate who told me the school was going to pay for both implants due to what had happened. I was happy with this decision and booked an appointment for the first part of the implant. Days before surgery the school called me and told me they changed their minds and what the patient advocate had told me after her meeting about my case did not matter and she was no longer with the dental school! I'm so mad at the dental school, and the money I was going to use for the implant went to something else because I believed them! Ugh, what would you do?

Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

If you want to really pursue the matter, you can contact the local dental society in your city.

Find the contact details here: http://ebusiness.ada.org/mystate.aspx

They have a peer review process for cases such as yours. The dentist in the Dental School, being a member has to attend this meeting. This committee rules in the favor of the patient in most cases. The dentist is obliged to abide buy the decision. Moreover, this recourse wont cost you anything.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.

Good Luck !

Regards,
Dr. Behere
