OAK BROOK, Ill. (WLS) — Several patients of a dentist in Oak Brook, who dug deep into their pockets to pay for crowns and implants, said they were left unable to eat normally or even smile after his work.
Dr. James D’Alise faces six criminal charges for operating without a license, but he had his state license revoked well before those charges were filed.
The I-Team uncovered stories from patients who say they paid tens of thousands of dollars and were left waiting with a mouthful of problems.
“Crazy Glue, Fixodent, that’s been my life for three and a half years,” said Jim Wadas.
The teeth Wadas struggles with were supposed to be temporary, but after three-and-a-half years, he said those temporaries have turned into a permanent discomfort.
