Dental Malpractice Defense Verdict

John Versnel, III and Dan Mooney obtained a unanimous defense verdict for their client in Lee v. DDS in King County Superior Court.  The plaintiff sued her dentist, John and Dan’s client, and her orthodontist alleging a failure to diagnose and treat her ongoing periodontal disease, and allowing her to be kept in orthodontic treatment too long.  Plaintiff claimed damages were bone loss, tooth mobility and resulting debilitating neuropathic pain.  Plaintiff’s last demand was $1,000,000.  After a two-week trial, the jury returned a unanimous verdict finding the dentist did not violate the standard of care.
