My orthodontist recently filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy on a short notice and I paid by credit card for the treatment in full ($3500). He refered me to another orthodontist, who is going to charge me again to finish the treatment. However, this new orthodontist is currently using my orthodontist's office. Is there any way I can find out if there was a purchase deal or whether he actually did declare bankrupty? And of course, is there any way I can get at least a portion of my money back if he did file bankruptcy.
