Teeth Pulling Leads to Death
Getting an extraction of one tooth is scary. But 20 teeth?
In 2015, Judith Gan went to her dentist to have 20 teeth pulled, bone grafting and implants put in. According to an assistant, the dentist Rashmi Patel ignored many signs during the procedure that Gan’s health was in danger. The low oxygen alarm went off several times and the patient even made gurgling sounds before she stopped breathing altogether. She was taken to the hospital where she later died.
Patel eventually turned himself into the police after a warrant for his arrest was put out. He was charged with criminally negligent homicide.
