Tort/Negligence – Dental Malpractice – Tooth Extraction — Civil Practice – Rule 9(j) Certification – Retired Dentist (access required)

Moore v. Proper Even though plaintiff’s witness is retired and only fills in for other dentists when needed, since he spends all of his professional time in the clinical practice of dentistry, plaintiff could have reasonably expected him to qualify as an expert witness under N.C. R. Evid. 702. Since plaintiff satisfied the remaining requirements of N.C. R. Civ. P. 9(j), the trial court should not have dismissed her claim for dental malpractice. Reversed.
