In an action to recover damages for dental malpractice, the plaintiff appeals from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Westchester County (Smith, J.), dated August 25, 2006, which, upon a jury verdict, is in favor of the defendants and against him dismissing the complaint.
Gary Greenwald, Chester, N.Y. (Marc R. Leffler and David A. Brodsky of counsel), for appellant.
Lutfy Santora, Staten Island, N.Y. (James L. Lutfy of counsel), for respondents Gerald E. Miller and Gerald E. Miller, D.M.D., P.C.
Before: Spolzino, J.P., Santucci, Balkin and Dickerson, JJ., concur.
Ordered that the judgment is affirmed, with costs.
The Supreme Court erred in excluding from evidence a portion of the deposition testimony of the defendant Gerald E. Miller (see CPLR 3117 [a] ; Fanek v City of Yonkers, 287 AD2d 683) and in prospectively precluding the parties from objecting to summations ( see Roma v Blaustein, 44 AD2d 576, 577). Nevertheless, we decline to reverse the judgment in favor of the defendants because the errors were harmless ( see CPLR 2002; Maione v Pindyck, 32 AD3d 827; Gilbert v Luvin, 286 AD2d 600; Sperin v Good Samaritan Hosp., 250 AD2d 755; Lauter v Village of Great Neck, 231 AD2d 553, 555; see also Mullen v Eswar, 233 AD2d 376).
The plaintiff's remaining contentions are without merit.
