Root canal done incorrectly, referred to endodontist, now needs to be re done, I already paid 1st dentist, now have to pay endodontist for same tooth , can i get refund from Dentist?
It is worth asking. What is the charge. You can always sue in small claims court if the first dentist refuses to step up and pay what is owed.
I agree with Slade that it is worth requesting a refund. It might be difficult to force a refund, however.
The dentist will most likely not agree that the root canal was performed incorrectly and you could spend more litigating the matter than the refund would be worth. Still, as stated, perhaps a small claims court could decide the matter. The dentist might agree to a full or partial refund rather than having to testify in small claims court. I do have to advise you to talk to a local injury attorney and provide all the details to get appropriate legal advce. Good luck.
