1) What reasons did Dr. Devos provide when he said you were a good candidate for implants?
2) What reasons has he given to explain why the implants have failed multiple times?
If he hasn’t given any reasons or states that reasons such as lack of bone density are the cause of failure but hasn’t suggested a bone graft to increase the chance of success, then he might not know what he is doing.
If Dr Devos is unwilling to refund any of what you paid even though you’ve received nothing but pain (first sign of a dishonest/amoral dentist), cannot provide any legitimate reason why the implants have failed multiple times and you think you can prove that he is guilty of malpractice using the x-rays, not trying a bone graft and the testimony of the technician, then I would consider consulting a legal professional (who is familiar with dental cases) to see if they think you have a case against him. The legal consultation might not be free, but $10,000 is a lot of money so it might be worth doing everything you can to get some of it back.
Another thing I would do is find another (more trustworthy) dentist or oral surgeon in your area and tell them your story, get them to inspect your teeth, their opinion on the work that Dr. Davos did and their advice as to what you should do next. There might be a small fee for this, but again, it’s worth it considering the situation you’re in and the importance of your dental health.
Please note that I am not a professional and that this is all my personal opinion and thoughts on the matter.
