Can I get my money back from a dentist who did inferior work?
My new dentist found that the crowns were not properly fitted and I had decay on those teeth. She referred me to a endodontic who tested each tooth and told me that I need root canals on all of the teeth with crowns except for the old one that I already had.

Not every bad outcome is malpractice, but it sounds like the first dentist may have done a poor job (below the normal standard of care).
To start this process, you should go to a malpractice lawyer.
Few lawyers take dental claims as the damages often do not warrant the costs on these cases.
But the lawyer can have a dental expert review your records to determine if you have a viable case.
If you only want a refund, that is not enough damages to make the case worthwhile, so the doctor will be looking for permanent damage.
