Dentist Pulls ALL HIS TEETH Without Permission

Christopher Crist claims that he went into a dentist office to get a few painful teeth pulled. When he walked out, he had none.

The 21-year-old Indiana man, who is autistic, told Fox 59 that his mom sent him to Amazing Family Dental in Indianapolis to get three of his teeth removed. But instead of ending the procedure with three pulled teeth, the dentist kept going, Crist says.

"They pulled every last one of them," he told the station. "I am going to look like a freak now."

He says the gruesome operation began after the dentist gave him some pills to ease the pain of the procedure, WTVR reports. His mother had given him strict instructions to ask that three teeth be pulled. It's unclear when the mixup occurred.

1. It's unclear when the mixup occurred.

Um, maybe when he started pulling the 4th tooth?

2. From reading the link, I see that other people have had teeth pulled that ...

...they didn't want pulled.

I hope Christopher gets a new set of implants and his mother drives him home in their new Cadillac.

4. I have to wonder what his parents were thinking.

Did they send this kid by himself? How was he to get home after being given pain medications? I don't like to victim-blame, but honestly, I wouldn't let my autistic child go for major dental extractions without someone there to help make their wishes known and protect their interests.

NONE of which excuses the dentist - his/her conduct is incomprehensible and they should have their license pulled so they can never practice again.
