Dentist Found Within Standard of Care

Thomas G. Wianecki (Senior Partner/Irvine Office) received another defense verdict on May 9, 2005 in a Dental Malpractice case where a 30-year-old woman claimed 8 crowns were defective and that periodontal problems and TMJ had resulted from the poor fit of the crowns. Defense argued that all the crowns were and are within the standard of care and that the patient approved the size, shape, and color of crowns before permanent cementation. The jury came back after deliberating for just under 3 hours with a verdict for the defense.
