Mobile dentists are common in areas where low-income families have limited access to affordable healthcare. Many schools partner with dental management services companies so that children will receive dental exams and care before cavities and gum disease problems start.
One child, a four-year-old boy, received two baby root canals and crowns while in school with no anesthetics and without his mother’s consent. He came home from school crying and has been suffering traumatic nightmares since the mobile dentist performed the work. The boy’s family is not the only one coming forward with problems concerning mobile dentists.
Personal injury lawyers have been contacted by other parents whose children have received unnecessary and painful dental care. Now local dentists are filing complaints against the mobile dental clinics because the brook-and-mortar dentists have to correct the poorly performed and often unnecessary work that was performed.
