A child contracted an infection after a dental procedure at Children’s Dental Group’s Anaheim clinic, and the family, along with others, has filed a lawsuit claiming fraud and medical malpractice.
According to reports, approximately two months ago, a child was taken to the Children’s Dental Group for a “baby root canal.” After the procedure, the child contracted a serious infection. This is only one case of an issue developing after a procedure at the clinic. The doctors are also accused of pressuring families to schedule their children for unnecessary procedures.
Since the word came out that a family complained about the clinic and its practices, hundreds more people have come forward. Lawyers representing the plaintiffs said, “This is a high-volume, high-profit clinic that cares about one thing…money.”
It is alleged that the doctors strapped down a child with autism and performed two root canals without anesthesia. Attorneys said that they were “shocked” every time a new fact emerged.
Parents should be able to take their children to the dentist without concern for their safety. Parents should also be able to assume that the procedures being performed are necessary. People are urged to research new doctors, and even already-used doctors, with care.
