Larry Rosenthal Rewrites “The Rules” With Vengeful Author

by Jim Du Molin

Every dentist has had to deal with a nightmare patient, but Dr. Larry Rosenthal’s is making headlines. As most of you know, Larry is based inManhattan and serves a well-heeled clientele rumored to include Catherine Zeta-Jones and Donald Trump. So Ellen Fein went to see him before a publicity tour for the best-selling book she co-authored, The Rules: Time-Tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right. (The book raised controversy for suggesting that women play coy and hard-to-get in order to land a husband.)

Ms. Fein’s primary complaint is that Dr. Rosenthal gave her “gigantic” veneers that changed her bite. In 2004, nearly ten years after the work was performed, Ms. Fein filed a complaint with the Office of Professional Discipline against the doctor. She also set up a website,, slamming him, his work, and his reputation. She’s posted a copy of her complaint, which alleges (among other things) that she suffered from arm pain, vomiting and TMJ, and required root canals, gum grafts and physical therapy. An interesting set of complaints. I can definitely understand the need for therapy – psychotherapy.

Larry’s not having any of it. He’s filed a $5 million suit against Ms. Fein for malicious defamation, harassment and extortion. His lawsuit claims she confronted the doctor in his office last year, screaming at him in front of patients that he had ruined her teeth, her marriage and her life. In addition, the doctor claims Ms. Fein and her lawyer attempted to extort $100,000 on the threat of ruining his reputation. Whew!
