Outrageous Man Goes for Routine Dental Procedure and Wakes Up With No Teeth
An Indiana man says he woke up from what was supposed to be a simple dental procedure to find he was missing all his teeth.
Donny Grigsby had gone into White River Dental in Columbus, Indiana, because of an abscessed tooth. He was expecting to have four teeth pulled.
His wife, Amanda, said that after more than five-and-a-half hours in the waiting room, she demanded answers.
"There is blood all over him, all over his shirt,” she told WRTV, upon seeing Donny. “And my husband is droopy-eyed, not responsive."
She said that the dentist told her they were afraid that the infection would spread from the one tooth that was abscessed.
Amanda says they called an ambulance and Donny had to be put into a medically-induced coma
"I am so ashamed now. I have no teeth. I woke up with no clothes on. I was scared," Donny said. "I just want to get teeth in my head and go on."
The family says they have an attorney and plan to file a malpractice suit.
An attorney representing White River Dental released a statement, saying that they asked the patient to authorize them to release information to the press, but the request was not accepted.
"Unless the patient signs the authorization, that leaves us no alternative but to seek a court order authorizing us to respond to these defamatory allegations," the statement read. "Our client has authorized the attorneys to prepare the pleadings to get such an order."
