Georgia Dentist Maims Nerves- Loses Case as Old Professor Testifies

M James Fagan

Dentist M. James Fagan III, operating out of Atlanta Ga, will have $875,000 less to go towards that new beach house.

from the daily report online : After severing the lingual nerve of then 28 year old Kerry Stolte during the removal of her wisdom teeth, Stolte was left with severe life long pain and mounting bills from oral surgeries that only escalated the problems. After losing her job as an insurance underwriter because she couldn’t talk for more than 2 hours, the case looked to be going either way as the sneak-thief Fagan camp tried to enter a video of Stolte doing yard work as evidence that she wasn’t that hurt.

You know, because the ability to do yard work with your hands and feet are totally relative to the impossibility of oral pain..

In what was described as true “Perry Mason” fashion, the case was blown wide open when Fagan’s old professor was brought in to testify that he never taught him that method of extraction, as Fagan claimed. Leaving potty mouthed Fagan cursing and shaking in his shoes..

“When I announced Dr. Joy, all heck broke loose at defendants’ table,” Lamar (Stolte’s lawyer) continued…”Dr. Fagan shouted an obscenity at me from defendants’ table.”

With all the money Fagan has spent on defending himself he could have just used that to right his wrongs. Horrible Dentist never learn.

We congratulate Kerry Stolte for her personal victory and wish her the best of luck and health in her recovery.

Tip: Spotting a Horrible Dentist before Visiting

Image

Kim Henry, D.M.D, was nice enough to leave his perspective as a medical professional sworn in to help the general populace: patients lie. They are their own worst enemy and often times go to non reputable dentists. In the SLIGHT chance in his 30+ years of practicing that he finds negligent work, he asks the patient to go back and seek…correction or compensation. Then report them to the board of education.

Of note, he did not say that he didn’t charge the patient for telling them to go back to the negligent dentist. He also didn’t say he would provide testimony for the negligent work. If the medical professional is negligent, which is a “rarity”, why worry about doing a “professional” courtesy? This backs up exactly my collusion post – doesn’t it?

None the less, we appreciate his honesty and his post brings up a good point. How do we identify and avoid negligent dentists in the first place?

Like the devil, the greatest asset to horrible dentist is the belief, and reinforcement by reputable dentists, that they don’t exist. We civilians walk around thinking that if you spent the money and went through the years of school you have to be good right? Wrong – not all doctors, cops, firemen, or any other person who means to “help” is created equal.

From my research through this wretched ordeal, I’ve found a simple way to identify horrible dentists is to simply do a court records searchvia the internet. If they have ANY malpractice claims against them, stay far far farrr away. Now, dentists will tell you that this isn’t an apt measure, that patients will sue you for the slightest irrational thing. But, what you should know while doing your research it is extremely difficult to get a lawyer to even accept a dental malpractice claim due to the collusion and inability to get testimony from another dentist. And even if the lawyer accepts the case, the compensation is considerably low. Reported cases of victims losing 10+ teeth due to unnecessary or inadequate bridges, or damaged suffering damaged facial nerves from pulled wisdom teeth that will leave the patient with a numb face forever will run the dentist…about $250,000. That’s maybe one years salary? Meanwhile you can spill a cup of coffee on yourself at a drive through and get a cool 2 mill.

Trust your instincts and trust me, check the local court systems before choosing a dentist.

Fresno Dentist sued after teen loses part of her jaw

Image

Su Nhia Ying Vang, a supposed dentist, needs to be brought to justice. The Fresno Bee reports below:

 

 

Over the next 20 months, Vue made more than a dozen visits to Vang’s office. During that time, Vang took more than seven sets of X-rays of Vue’s teeth, filled several cavities, did a root canal, extracted two teeth and gave her antibiotics and painkillers. But, Vue testified, Vang failed to detect a tumor in her jaw or refer her to a specialist in a timely manner.

 
A horrible dentist will do everything in their power to squeeze you of every penny, even if that means overlooking a tumor if their are “cavities” and other dental work that can put money in their pocket. This guy apparently was in trouble with the dental board while this was happening. It’s very odd that dentists can be complained out time and again to the board , or be on suspension, and yet still be able to practice. 
 
Want to learn how you can elongate the length of time state’s give you to file a malpractice claim? Stay tuned.

It’s not me, It’s YOU!

From researching and personal experience, it’s apparent that enablers are capable of Jedi like mind melds. Virtual wizards of manipulation. If you find yourself in a dental office bringing up valid concerns about work and they essentially say “well you put yourself in this position by not having perfect teeth in the first place” – know that they are deflecting blame in an effort to make you feel as though your victimization is deserved.

As we may all know, there’s an unfounded shame that accompanies the need for dental guidance.Well You wouldn’t feel ashamed if you needed to see a doctor would you? If people didn’t need medical attention with their teeth there would be no reason for them to be a dentist! Am I right, or am I right?

Taking blame off of a colleague and putting it onto the patient is the sign of an Horrible Dentist Enabler. If you encounter this – leave! But as a reader stated- make sure you ask him outright if the work is done well. If you believe (s)he is an enabler, take out a piece of paper IN FRONT of them and make your own notes. Read it back to them before you leave:

“So you say that this work is done well. No problems. The occlusion/crown/surgery etc is performed just as you would???”

Then tell them that you will be requesting his version of medical notes “for your records”. This will let them know that 1) the records will not be able to be revised or convenient details omitted and
2) you are serious. Perhaps that will at least not charge you for the visit in which they did nothing.

They are as slippery as gulf coasted eels these people. Like poor David, it’s enough to leaving one in fits of rage or questioning if this is indeed real life

Most of us as ordinary folks honor those who have gone through rigorous study, finance, and mental and physical training in order to serve the general populace.

Few, if any, of these occupations are as highly respected as the Health Care Professional. We go to them not only relying on their expertise, but also their oath to ethically provide care and treatment.  However, it’s become increasingly obvious that gone are the days of someone wanting to be a Dr to “help someone” and instead it’s seen as a good profession that can line the pockets at our expense. The cesspool of treachery, collusion, and negligence that the Dental profession has embraced as the rule of law,  is enough to make your head spin on its neck straight exorcism style.

Through my research there is a strong implication that we “civilians”, who have been chewed up and spit out – no pun intended –  by the Dentist we turned to for help,  are increasingly left traumatized and voiceless.

So, whether you are a  victim of an extremely complicated transgression, or your occlusion has been damaged due to what should have been an easy dental filling/procedure: Let me know!  Together, We will warn the general public, 1 horrible dentist at a time. :-)
