Video: Allcare Dental Closing Leaves Patients Without Money and Teeth


I suppose there will be a bankruptcy sale of this company but patients may have to wait many months to either file a money claim and/or to receive any dental work completed. Since dentistry is regulated on a state by state basis and bankruptcy court is federal, I don't quite know how remuneration for these patients will work.

If it works at all.

The various state boards of dentistry will be outraged but will have little recourse to hold corporate owners responsible who do not practice dentistry in their state.
