HOUSTON – A Houston woman has pursued legal action in response to her alleged termination from a dental clinic last year, recent Harris County District Court records show.
Latasha Green is suing Champions Modern Dentistry and Orthodontic and Pacific Dental on a claim she lost her job as a dental assistant because of her race. She initiated the litigation on Feb. 27.
Per Green, she experienced a hostile work environment despite a clean performance record.
Her lawsuit explains that she was verbally assaulted by one Dr. Mulikat Adetosoye during a mandatory employee meeting on Feb. 15, 2016, adding Adetosoye nearly hit her in the face.
Green subsequently reported the incident in question out of concern for her safety to which court papers state that her superiors did nothing.
The complainant further shows that the plaintiff reported Adetosoye, who is not a party in the litigation, for over-diagnosing patients only to be ultimately fired.
Green insists the move was in retaliation for her complaint about Adetosoye.
“This retaliation was and is due to the plaintiff exercising her rights by reporting overbilling,” the original petition says.
Consequently, she seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Attorneys Dani Bradberry and Arthur J. White, III of the law firm The Bradberry Group, LLC in Houston serve as Green’s legal counsel.
