Minnesota woman sues dentist who performed 8 dental crowns, 4 root canals and 20 fillings in one visit, leaving her disfigured

A Minnesota woman, Kathleen Wilson, has initiated a legal action against her dentist, Dr. Kevin Molldrem, alleging that he performed an excessive number of procedures in a single session, leading to distress and disfigurement.

Wilson filed a civil suit, asserting that in July 2020, Molldrem conducted eight dental crowns, four root canals, and 20 fillings within a five-and-a-half-hour timeframe. She claims to have experienced pain, embarrassment, and distress as a result of the procedures.

Wilson further alleges that Molldrem exaggerated the amount of anesthesia administered and falsified her medical records.

According to her, the aftermath of the visit compelled her to seek assistance from multiple other dentists to address the issues arising from Molldrem’s treatment.

Dr. Avrum Goldstein, a reputable Florida dentist, has supported Wilson’s claims in his expert report. Goldstein acknowledged extensive decay in virtually every tooth in Wilson’s mouth but criticized Molldrem’s treatment plan as hurried and substandard.

“Katie required a slow, thoughtful, careful and measured response to her disease,” Goldstein wrote. “Trying to fill every hole in every tooth in her mouth in one visit is not only the antithesis of what was indicated, it is not humanely possible to achieve in an effective or constructive manner.”

Goldstein also confirmed Wilson’s assertion of excessive anesthesia, highlighting that she received nearly double the recommended dosage for a prolonged appointment – 960 milligrams instead of the maximum recommended 490 milligrams.
