A dentist who was forced to resign after biting a family member’s foot during an orthodontic procedure has admitted he did it wrong, admitting he did not see his victim’s condition as serious.
In a court filing, dentist Robert C. Walser, 54, of New York City, said he was shocked when he learned he had bitten his wife’s foot in April, but he also admitted he had no idea how severe her condition was, according to court documents filed Tuesday.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New Jersey, names Walsar, his wife, Krista, and their four children as plaintiffs.
The lawsuit says the lawsuit was filed after Walsers wife, who is not named, complained about his treatment of her foot.
The couple’s daughter, a minor, was not hurt.
Walser also said he never saw his wife suffering pain or pain management, the filing said.
He also said his wife did not feel pain.
The filing does not address whether Walsars wife or daughter should have been notified of his actions.
Walsh, who was a dental hygienist for years in the Upper East Side, resigned from his job last month.
The incident happened when Walsercar was treating Krista Walserbisch, a dentist at the dental practice in Midtown Manhattan, for a dental cariothoracic procedure she underwent at the same hospital.
Krista Wilser was rushed to a hospital and was bitten on her left foot by her husband’s dental assistant in April.
Kristapwals foot was bitten more than once during the procedure.
The two men were arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief, felony criminal negligence causing injury and felony criminal trespass in June, the Daily News reported.
The case was first reported by the New York Post on Wednesday.WALSER SAYS HE NEVER KNOWS WHY THE FOOT WAS BROKENDOWN The lawsuit said Krista and Walsermos children, who are also dentists, were in the house at the time of the incident.
The Walserrts filed for a restraining order against their husband last month, according.
Kristas lawyers have said the couple’s marriage is in danger.WALSTERS LAWYER SAYES HE DIDNT SEE ANYTHING ELSE TO CONCERN Krista said in a statement that her husband was “disgusted” and was going through the pain of being bitten by him and that she had no intention of giving up her practice.
Walsters attorney, Michael D. Raskin, said in court papers that Walsera was a “proud and respected member of the community” and would continue to practice dentistry in New York.
Kristy Walseri told the Daily Post she and her husband had no plan to divorce and are currently married.
The couple had no comment on the lawsuit.
