Chicago, IL, Dec. 10 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clifford Law Firms filed lawsuits on behalf of 11 people against the Aspen Dental Clinic in Crestwood over two hidden cameras found in a unisex employee’s bathroom.

The lawsuits, which allege negligent hiring, negligent monitoring, negligent retention of one of its employees who allegedly placed the two hidden cameras in September 2020, until an employee discovered one of them on October 22, 2020. The second camera in the bathroom was found a few days later by an employee. The complaints also allege intrusion into solitary confinement under Illinois law.

The 11 lawsuits filed in Cook County Circuit Court involve dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and a dental marketer who were apparently unknowingly filmed using the bathroom in the clinic over a period of approximately three weeks.

The employee, a dental hygienist, allegedly placed the hidden cameras there and was criminally charged for his actions. He apparently had a criminal record prior to his two-month employment at the Aspen Dental Clinic located at 13442 S. Cicero Ave. at Crestwood, but the owners and supervisors never conducted a proper or thorough background check on the employee before he was hired or during his employment there.

Two of the employees, Dr. Trent Jones, DMD, and Alyssa Raine, a dental assistant, quit their jobs at the Aspen Dental Clinic due to the mental and emotional distress they suffered as a result of actions as outrageous.

TWO FORMER ASPEN CLINIC EMPLOYEES AND CLIFFORD LAW OFFICES ATTORNEY JOSEPH ROUKE ARE SPOKEN DURING A ZOOM NEWS CONFERENCE THURSDAY DECEMBER 10. Employees gave statements and were available for questions.

Defendants named in the lawsuit include the national company, Aspen Dental Management, as well as Crestwood Clinic owner Dr. Abigail Brier, DMD, and her company, ABD Dental Management, Inc.
