Q: Is it a patient's right to know the names of the dentist and staff performing procedures on her? They refuse to tell me.
The dental assistant assaulted me by over-gassing me on purpose. They won't tell me her name now because I told them I was maybe going to file a police report.
A: If you file the police report they will find out. You have a right to your records, but they may or may not say who was assisting (dental records are way different from standard medical OR records). Contact a member of the Colo. Assn for Justice who handles medical cases to discuss your options--they give free consults.
