A Cleveland law firm is pursuing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of patients of a storefront dental-care chain that abruptly closed nationwide in December. Spangenberg, Shibley & Liber LLP filed the suit in Ohio recently and in Allcare Dental & Dentures' home state of New York, said Nicholas DiCello, an attorney with the firm.
In late December, Allcare closed about 40 locations, including Toledo. In some cases, patients were left with unfinished procedures for which they had paid thousands of dollars. The Ohio Attorney General's Office referred Allcare customers to a Web site Allcare set up after the closures, www.allcareinfo.com.
