W.Va. woman sues dentist after implant surgery

A West Virginia woman is suing Simpson Dental Associates of Charleston and a dentist for dental malpractice following an unsuccessful implant surgery, according to a news story in the West Virginia Record.

According to court documents, Bonnie Ford underwent bone replacement graft surgery by Mark W. Simpson, D.D.S., on November 6, 2007, in preparation for the placement of permanent dental implants, the Record reported.

Now Ford is accusing Dr. Simpson of negligence for failing to properly acquire her medication history, including her use of Fosamax that directly impacted the success of the surgery.

Ford claims that following the procedure, Dr. Simpson concealed her injuries and complications until October 2008 when she discovered her bone and adjoining teeth had been compromised, according to the story.

She is seeking compensatory and punitive damages, the story concluded.
