Unauthorized Dental Procedure
It is a known fact that all dental procedures need to be consented to by the patient. Well, this was not the case in France.
Dentist Jacobus Van Nierop was dubbed the “horror dentist” after word got out about his violent and unethical dental practices. One patient, Sylviane Boulesteix, said she was called to her dentist office in central-eastern France in May 2012. When she arrived, Van Nierop immediately pulled out eight of her teeth and fixed dentures on her raw gums. She sat gushing blood for three hours.
Another patient, Bernard Hugon, also had a tooth pulled by the dentist, who left pieces of flesh hanging everywhere. The other horror stories he left in his wake involved healthy teeth being removed, pieces of tools left in teeth, abscesses, recurrent infections and broken jaws.
