A 33-year-old mother of four who alleged in a dental malpractice lawsuit filed in DeKalb County State Court that shoddy work by a drug-addicted dentist ruined her teeth has won a $2.8 million verdict against the dentist’s employer after a rare trifurcated trial ended at the close of the first phase.
