Woman files $10M suit against dentist after alleged botched procedure

A clarinetist claims she could literally lose face after an allegedly botched procedure by a Manhattan dentist.

Boja Kragulj, who has performed in orchestras in Philadelphia and New York, claims in a $10 million lawsuit that her face could “prematurely age” because of “irreversible” bone loss from the work of Martha Cortes.

Facing the prospect of double jaw surgery after lifelong dental and breathing problems, Kragulj turned to Cortes in 2013 for an alternative. The dentist, who has an office on Central Park South, treated Kragulj unsuccessfully for years before placing a device called an Anterior Growth Guided Appliance, or AGGA, and controlled arch braces, in the musician’s mouth.

The AGGA was supposed to be a substitute for jaw surgery by stimulating new bone growth, helping to move Kragulj’s teeth and jaw forward and improve her airway. Instead, Kragulj claims in court papers, the device left her in worse shape

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed many in-person activities into remote services delivered over the internet. The latest example is the dreaded visit to the dentist.

Dvora Brandstatter used to drive her son Elchanan half an hour to the orthodontist and back every month to make sure his braces were working properly. Now, from the comfort of her home in Bergenfield, New Jersey, she attaches a special scope to her smartphone camera, opens an app and inserts the contraption into the 11 year-old’s mouth. A video of the boy’s choppers is sent to his dentist who checks progress, diagnoses any issues and sometimes ends the appointment right there.

“As a parent having fewer appointments is a good thing,” Brandstatter said. “I haven’t seen a downside so far. It’s probably the way everything is moving anyway.”

The app and the scope were created last year by New Jersey-based

This Startup Raised $37 Million To Make Going To The Dentist Fun

Afraid of going to the dentist? Does the thought of getting a root canal fill your heart with dread? If so, you’re not alone. Even though the American Dental Association recommends that some people visit the dentist multiple times a year, only half of adults in the U.S. do. One of the main reasons cited for this failure? Fear. 

Tend, a new dentistry startup hoping to inject life into an old-fashioned industry, aims to reduce that fear. On October 1st, the company announced that it raised a $37 million Series B round that will help it make going to the dentist a positive, maybe even fun, experience. 

“[Dentistry] is just outdated and a bit broken, and I think we’ve all lived it,” says John Lyman, a partner at GV. “[Tend] has a different approach.” GV led the round alongside investors Tiger Global and Good
