Customer Question
I just found out...

I just found out my former dentist lost his license. After finding a new dentist, I had to have all the work he performed redone. About $15,000 worth. I read the reasons he lost his license and they are identical to my problems. What should I do if anything?

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last visit to the dentist? Any irregular checkups?

His staff said he was sick and would be out indefinitely. I now know that is a lie. I had a dentist in his practice replace a crown that was only a year old and they charged me for it, after that I changed dentist only to find out all the crowns he placed were in the same condition

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?

No Well, other than her gave me nitrous gas and didn't have a license to administer it about 5 x

I'm asking if it would be reasonable

Patient typically do this? I am
Not wealthy. It was a strain to pay for this twice.

It would certainly be reasonable to ask for a reimbursement for work that needed to be redone.The problem would be getting him to actually give your money back. You certainly have reasonable cause to ask for the reimbursement but you may find that you need to either file a complaint with the dental board or actually retain an attorney to get any results.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
