Are there expresses or implied laws about warranty on dental work. If dentist has expressed warranty and has sold his practice, who holds the liability? Previous owner or new owner?

Asked by Anonymous 2009-05-27 10:33:27 ago.

I had some crown work done by a dentist in my local area (about 2 1/2 years ago). The original dentist that did the work has an expressed warranty of 3 years.Since my porcelain crown has fractured and cracked in half, I contacted the dental office to inquire about warranty. I was informed that the original dentist had sold the practice to the current dentist that was inquiring with including the patient records. I have contacted both the original doctor and the current doctor. The current dentist has said that the liability still falls with the original doctor and the original doctor says the liability falls with the current dentist since the patient records were sold along with the practice. I'm stuck in the middle with both dentist pointing fingers at each other. On top of that, my insurance won't cover a replacement since the work was done withing the last five years so I'm stuck with a $1000 bill to replace the crown. Is there anything legal that I can do?
