    Stewart’s Answer

    Without knowing the gravity of the Connecticut charges nor the terms of any probation, pennsylvania courts will only factor the charges in (as opposed to stripping him of custody rights) Of course, if your son was the victim or is an danger of being harmed this could be different.

    Stewart’s Answer

    If you still have a dental need, you should firstly address that concern with another dentist if the first dentist harmed you, you should meet with a medical malpractice attorney, one who has experience with dental claims. Generally, there is not a right of redress for failing to provide treatment, unless of course you had already paid for that treatment. In general you have two years from the injury to initiate a action. Some claims might be even less time.
