Charting Negligent Dentistry

Over the course of two years and 30+ visits to the dentist, the plaintiff in this case received a long series of increasingly invasive dental work, culminating in having six of her teeth removed. After she switched dentists she learned she would still need extensive and costly restorative work. She sued her former dentist to cover the costs.

We created a timeline and map of dental procedures, color coded by type. Over time, the procedures accumulate on each tooth, and also appear on a small calendar on the right side of the page. Our goal was to emphasize the sheer volume of dental work, to demonstrate how disruptive and ineffectual this long series of procedures was.
