Today, it was the fourth time I've had major dental work done, because my dentist messed up my root canal. After almost a dozen needles, three missed work days, over $1,000, and 2 broken tools, I only have a tiny, barely-successful filling to show for it. FML

And sue them

I'm sorry this happened to you, OP, but you kind of deserve it. Why would you keep going back to the same person?

I agree with #21. OP should've found a new dentist and said see ya to the old one.

#11- While I agree, cases against dentists/dental practices are almost never won. It's not like medical malpractice, which still are fairly difficult to cases to win even when it's obvious that the doctor/care provider was at fault. It's almost impossible to prove there was malpractice in dentistry, but if OP has the money to spare knowing they'll likely lose then they should go for it. It's awful that it's like that! It shouldn't be.

other dentists won't typically touch a patient that another dentist screwed up. liability thing. So op was stuck.

I feel your pain. My DDS has put me in a similar situation. Sorry OP!

You shouldn't pay for any of the extra work they did to fix a bad filling. Your life sucks op, hopefully they opted to give you some pain killers for at home as well. I've been there , it sucks.

If you know and trust your dentist then you shouldn't have anything to worry about. It sounds like the OP has a really lousy dentist and should consider getting a new one.

Well, at least it's over! I say find a new dentist if you need more work done later on though

Sounds like it's time for a new dentist!

Ouch. Definitely time for a new dentist. Root canals are no fun, but to have someone screw it up sucks. :(

Seems like your dentist couldn't fix the root of the problem.

If it was the same dentist YDI for not leaving and getting a new one...

he couldn't leave. Once it was messed up other dentists wouldn't take him because it is a huge liability. he has to complete the work and then he can get a better dentist
