Amazing Family Dental clinic is really amazing as one of its patients was left with no teeth at all. An autistic man from Indianapolis has been left without any teeth after a dental screw-up.
Christopher Crist claims that he went into a dentist office to get a few painful teeth pulled. When he walked out, all of his 32 teeth were removed.
“They pulled every last one of them,” said Crist. “I am going to look like a freak now,” he added. “Honest to God.”
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.
“It [the pills]made me loopy and as they were doing that, they were shooting my gums with the numbing gel,” Crist told the station.
“They took the first three that I asked them to and then they just kept going,” he added.
Crist was admitted to a hospital where he’s reportedly battling an infection due to the dentistry debacle. He and his mother plan to sue the dentist – who wasn’t named because no legal action has yet been taken – and have witnesses to back them up.
His parents said they were trying to get his patient file from the dentist and would be filing a complaint with the state of Indiana.
Sheena Cortez says she was in the exam room adjacent to Crist at the time of the procedure. She said she was in disbelief and that Crist’s face “looked scary.”
“I have never seen a dentist, pull every one of someone’s teeth out like that,” said Cortez. She said it looked like something out of a horror movie.
Cortez shared with Fox News that herself continues to deal with her own pain. The result of her latest dental visit.
“I am still in pain from the two crowns,” said Cortez. “My mouth does not shut all the way. My teeth do not touch.”
However those people are not the only examples of carelessness of that very doctor. That story was that the dentist at Amazing Family Dental has been taking out too many teeth.
Another woman, Rose Hill went to the dentist to take care of one tooth that was bothering her. She said the doctor pulled her entire bottom row.
“I was shocked,” said Hill. “I said, ‘What do you mean you have to take them all? There is not anything wrong with them. They are not bothering me.’”
Reporters of Fox News were turned away when they visited Amazing Family Dental, and claim that workers there called the police on them.
The doctor never came out of his office; instead he told his staff to call the police.
