PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County Dentist is facing a medical malpractice suit for allegedly pulling the wrong teeth from a child.
Peter M. Habashy’s dental practice is named as the defendant. The specific dentist allegedly responsible for the claimed malpractice is not named.
According to the suit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court:
“Defendant, PETER M. HABASHY DDS, at all times material hereto, had a duty to provide dental care in his care and treatment to minor Plaintiff, [redacted], in a manner commensurate with the applicable and recognized standard of care for a similarly situated healthcare provider. Notwithstanding said duty, Defendant, PETER M.

”The minor Plaintiff was injured in and about her body and extremities, suffered pain, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of the capacity of enjoyment of incurred medical expenses for the treatment of said injuries, suffered physical dicap and aggravated a pre-existing physical condition. Said injuries are either ermanent or continuing in nature and the Plaintiff will suffer such losses and impairments in the future.”
