CHICAGO – A woman alleges she was injured because her dentist failed to properly perform a root canal.

Yvette Burnside filed a complaint on June 2 in Cook County Circuit Court against Darold Tucker, DDS alleging medical malpractice.

After a few months, she alleges she started to experience severe headaches and pain.
