Dental Malpractice - Implants – Crown and Bridge Restoration

West Palm Beach Shareholder, Dennis Vandenberg successfully defended a general dentist who placed a PFM crown and bridge restoration at 6 to 11. Two years later it required replacement with implants. The patient claimed that it was a permanent restoration, but the dentist claimed it was only provisional until a specialist could be identified to place implants. Despite not having any documentation to support his position, the dentist prevailed. The jury deliberated for less than an hour.
