Woman Sues Dentist for Conducting 32 Procedures in a Single Session

A Minnesota woman is suing her dentist for putting her through hell for over 5 hours by conducting 32 different procedures in a single, agonizing session. Having to endure one root canal is traumatizing enough, but imagine having to sit through 4 root canal procedures, 8 dental crowns, and no less than 20 fillings in a single session. It sounds like a nightmare and Kathleen Wilson says that it truly was. Her dentist, Dr. Kevin Molldrem, used double the recommended dose of anesthetic in an attempt to fix all her teeth in a single session. His efforts left Wilson disfigured and distressed, and she's now asking for at least $50,000 in damages. She had to undergo several other procedures just to fix the damage caused by Dr. Molldrem and she now wants him to pay. Dental expert Dr. Avrum Goldstein testified that although Dr. Molldrem’s diagnosis – that virtually every tooth in Wilson’s mouth had cavities – was right, the way he went about helping her was wrong. Dr. Goldstein said that Katie required a slow, thoughtful, careful and measured response to her disease, but that's not what she got. “Trying to fill every hole in every tooth in her mouth in one visit is not only the antithesis of what was indicated, it's not humanely possible to achieve in an effective or constructive manner,” he said.
