    Legal question about possible Dental Malpractice

    I have a question, recently my wife has had a bad toothache so she went to the dentist and they found that a different dentist 12-13 years earlier had left a part of an instrument embedded in her tooth/crown while doing a root canal. The x-ray shows this metal spike as clear as day, now it seems that she is going to have to have a not so simple procedure to get the thing removed. I think the previous dentist should cover the costs of the procedure, am I wrong?

    What should our course of action be?
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I don't know about your state but I know for a fact in KY where I live you have 1 year from the DISCOVERY of the foreign body to file a claim. So in this case despite having been 12-13 years you would still have a viable claim. I'm sure an attorney would give you a free consultation on this one.
