An autistic man has been left toothless after a dentist pulled all of his 32 teeth instead of pulling just 3 in a what-should-have-been-a-routine-procedure.
He said that his mother sent him to have three teeth removed at Amazing Family Dental. But he claims that while he was sedated the dentist kept pulling until all of his 32 teeth were removed that led him to spend 2 days in the hospital to fight the infection.
They pulled every last one of them. I am going to look like a freak now,” Christ tearfully said.
Crist revealed that the mix up began after he was given some pills to ease the pain. He said that dentist removed 29 teeth that he didn’t want to have extracted, but the dentist has declined to comment.
As for the Amazing Family Dental’s lawyer, Steve Eslinger issued the following statement:
Amazing Family Dental, PC and its dentist comply with the Health [Insurance] Portability And Accountability Act by keeping patient information confidential. This dental office also cooperates with patients by making patient files available to the patient on patient’s request.”
According to reports, Rose Hill claims that when she went to the same dental surgery about one troublesome tooth, the dentist removed the entire bottom row.
I was shocked,” she said.
A patient in the adjacent room while Crist was in surgery and says that his mouth looked “like something out of a horror movie”.
So far no legal action was taken, but Crist and his family are filling a complaint against the dentist with the state of Indiana.
