EDWARDSVILLE — A dentist is suing makers and distributors of dental restorative and cement products,
citing alleged breach of express and implied warranties.
Ricard Boatman, Jr. DMD PC, d/b/a Troy Family Dental, filed a complaint on Sept. 13 in Madison County Circuit Court against 3M Company, E4D Technologies LLC, Henry Schein Inc. and Tamela Dean, alleging that they violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
According to the complaint, Boatman claims the defendants' products were used to make and seat dental crowns. However, he alleges the products failed to perform as advertised, represented and warranted.
The plaintiff alleges that he suffered financial and reputation damages because the defendants' products caused needless injury, pain, inconvenience and misery to his patients.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants, jointly and severally, for compensatory damages in excess of $1 million, costs incurred and such other relief as the court deems proper. He is represented by David S. Corwin and Bradley A. Winters of Sher Corwin Winters LLC in St. Louis.
