Tort/Negligence – Dental Malpractice – Civil Practice – Rules 9(j) & 702 – Expert Witness – Clinical Practice – 45 Percent (access required)

Wright v. Frye The time plaintiffs’ only designated expert spent in forensic dentistry was correctly included in the calculation of his “professional time.” Since the expert said he only spent 45 percent of his professional time in clinical dentistry, with the remainder in forensic dentistry and administrative work, the expert did not qualify as an expert witness. We affirm the trial court’s order granting defendant’s motion to strike Dr. Thomas David as plaintiffs’ expert witness and granting defendant’s motion to dismiss.
