Lawsuit Targets Overpriced, Unnecessary Dental Work

The Massachusetts Attorney General has filed suit against a group of dentists, alleging they provided unnecessary and substandard dental work that left patients both in pain and in debt.

The AG is targeting three high-volume dental practices alleged to have attracted low-income patients with the offer of a free exam, then pulling a “bait and switch” that led to unneeded restorations and high-interest loans. Over 200 patients claim to have been taken advantage of.

The lawsuit names individual dentists, finance advisers and business managers employed at the three practices in question, as well as several corporations connected to the offices. In addition to substandard care, the practices in question also provided credit lines with 28% APR to patients who apparently had no idea what they were getting into.
