Question DetailsAsked on 1/7/2015

who do I contact when a dentist pulls teeth without permission or xray?

In August I went to a dentist to replace a loose front tooth fixture. Instead, he pulled the teeth that held the fixture...

Assuming you had not signed a release authorizing him to pull the teeth, sounds like malpractice to me. If you were not out with sedation when he pulled the teeth, your case would be a lot weaker as presumably you could have told him to stop - at least after the first tooth.


For a complaint against his license - i.e. possible suspension or revocation of license - the state board that licenses dentists would be the ones to contact - google a search phrase like this, putting in your state name of course - state dental licensing board Wyoming


For recovery of pain and suffering, and for the cost of replacement implants or whatever, you would need to contact a malpractice attorney. Unfortunately, AL does not list/review attorneys or legal services, so you will have to find referrals elsewhere.
