Am I responsible to let the same dentist remake my dentures?

1 Answers. Asked on May 08th, 2013 on Medical Malpractice - Florida
More details to this question:
I hired a dentist to make a set of dentures for me. After several fittings and one year later, the dentures still don't fit correctly, and I can't eat with them. I took the dentures to three other dentists and was told the dentures were not made correctly. I asked the dentist for my $ 4,000 back. He told me he would make me a new set of dentures, free of charge. I don't believe the dentist knows what he is doing. Is there a law that states I must let him remake my dentures, or should I take him to court to get my money back?

Its a contract case, if dentist has had reasonable opporunity to perform you may be within your rights to demand refund. If the dentist wont do it, you may have to hire a lawyer to sue him for the money back. You should make sure you get IN WRITING from the other dentists that the dentures are defective and why to make sure they dont retract thier statements or to expose "patter" where they say other dentist sucks ot get you to spend $$ with them.
