With corporate dentistry taking over the world, it’s good to remember Allcare who closed it’s doors overnight in January 2011 leaving patients without care or recourse, and dental boards scratching their..uh.…heads.
A class action lawsuit was filed and just like the Allcare’s doors, patients were left lock-jawed.
Allcare Dental Class Action Lawsuit
The Allcare companies filed for bankruptcy in the Western District of New York (Buffalo), Bankruptcy Petition #: 1-11-13848-CLB. Those proceedings terminated in 2013 with a report of no distribution. As such, there are no available assets from these entities for unsecured creditors.
You may have individual claims. Once the class action claims are dismissed, the statute of limitations for your claims will continue to run. You should contact an individual attorney in your state if you desire individual representation. Failure to file within the applicable statute of limitations will forever bar your claims. We are not handling these claims given the no-distribution report.
