Western Dental and RevSpring agreed to pay a settlement of $9,700,000 to end claims that the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Consumers had claimed that the business sent telemarketing text messages to recipients even after they had withdrawn their consent to receive the messages by texting “stop” in response.

The settlement provides benefits to those who received a text message to their phone from RevSpring’s TalkSoft platform regarding Western Dental, even after the customer sent RevSpring a text message containing the word “stop” in response the message. The message must have been sent within four years of Feb. 4, 2019 and March 13, 2020.

A class action lawsuit claimed that Western Dental and RevSpring violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by sending telemarketing text messages to consumers even after they actively opted out.



According to the plaintiffs, when they opted out, they effectively withdrew their consent to receive the messages. Because the TCPA requires that businesses obtain express written consent to send messages, the plaintiffs say Western Dental and RevSpring violated the law.

Western Dental and RevSpring have not admitted any liability in the TCPA class action lawsuit, but agreed to end the claims in a settlement to avoid the costs and risks of continuing to litigate the issue.

Class Members are eligible for payments between $50 and $150, approximately. The payments will be distributed on a pro rata basis. Attorney fees and costs, Class Representative awards and other expenses will be covered by the settlement amount, and the remainder will be divided between Class Members.

To receive a payment from the settlement, Class Members must file a valid claim before June 12, 2020. Claim forms can be submitted via the website or by mail to the claims administrator.

Only one claim per telephone number can be validated and approved. A valid ID or the phone number to which the spam text was allegedly sent is required to file a claim.



Class Members who choose to remain in the settlement Class, whether or not they choose to submit a claim for benefits, will give up their rights to pursue independent litigation against Western Dental and RevSpring.

Consumers who wish to keep their rights to sue, and who wish to not benefit from the settlement can opt out from the settlement. The deadline to opt out is June 12, 2020, and must be done by mail.

Those who wish to remain in the settlement but who do not like the settlement’s terms can choose to object to the settlement. This can be done through the court’s filing system, by mail or in person. Objections must be filed or postmarked by June 12, 2020.

Class Members are also invited to attend a final hearing on July 17, 2020. If the settlement receives final approval, those Class Members who remained in the settlement and submitted valid claims for benefits will receive a settlement check by mail. Claimants are advised that it may take some time for them to receive their benefits, as the settlement may go through revisions and appeals, which can take time.

      I received a check today from western dental TCPA settlement

      • NENE October 20, 2020

        AMOUNT??

    • Pedro S. October 21, 2020

      Yes, received my $251.66 check 2 days ago. I thought it might be a scam. Seems that not too many people filed a claim against the company. Therefore the amount distributed was more than the approximate $150. Took the check to the bank and had them check out the paper check. The bank stated that if the check bounced it would cost me $12.50 fee for returned check. Then I could dispute the check and get the money put back into my account if it was a good check. By reading up on the website it turns out this is a good check. Therefore tomorrow I will go to the bank and deposit this check. Finally something good comes out of this. Maybe other companies will take heed and stop sending us unsolicited messages!

    Hi all. I have a question. For these kind of claims, in which the unsolicited text or calls were received for any duration of time on our number, how can we be sure that those unknown calls or text were from which firm/services/institution etc? Should we keep on noting down such incidents and check if any lawsuit has been filed? My main question is how we can know that we qualify any unsolicited texts/calls lawsuit?
