If your damages (like medical expenses) end up exceeding $40k or so, and if the previous dentist can be shown to have violated the standard of care, you might have a valid claim. I foresee the biggest challenge is the damage model. These cases take ten of thousands of dollars to litigate. Your damages must be extensive to economically justify the cost of the suit.
