How many lawsuits have been filed against Small Smiles Dental Centers and the dentists who have worked there?

March 4, 2013
Small Smiles Greed Collage 2The answer can be found in court documents filed during their bankruptcy proceedings over the last year.  According to Affidavit of Chief Restructuring Officer of Martin McGahan, 100 were on file in February 2012.  More recent documents filed by their malpractice insurance carrier states 1100 are "working” so to speak and more lawsuit likely to come.


Affidavit of Martin McGahan - Doc 11 - February 20, 2012 – page 14 paragraph 38

“Since January 2010, approximately 11 lawsuits on behalf of over one hundred plaintiffs have been filed against the Company and certain of the Dental Centers, in primarily three states, Ohio, New York and Oklahoma.”

NUFI Objection Doc 568 - December 28, 2012 – page 4 paragraph 3:

“Subsequent to the Debtors’ settlement with the DOJ and the various states, a number of lawsuits were filed throughout the country by or on behalf of the Dental Center patients against certain of the Debtors, Dental Centers and Dentists, alleging claims for damages based upon treatment received at the Dental Centers. In addition to the Patient Litigation, the Debtors contend thatat least approximately 1100 additional patients or former patients” have retained counsel to assert similar claims against the Debtors, the Dental Centers and the Dentists.”

Dentists and auxiliary employee of Small Smiles Dental Centers (current or former) are not likely to be able to exhale for a very long time.

For a list of the 600 plus pleadings and filing of this case see in United States Bankruptcy Court – Middle District of Tennessee, see:
Church Street Health Management Docket Report

In other Small Smiles Dental Centers news.  I’m told the morning huddles continue and production numbers remain a major topic of discussion.
