Dentist under fire for allegedly pulling all of his patient's teeth bites back

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

An Indiana dentist and patient are going back and forth over a dentist appointment gone terribly wrong.

Donny Grigsby said he recently went to White River Dental in Columbus, Indiana, to have four teeth removed, and when he woke up, he had no teeth.

Now, Dr. Aaron Strickland, Grigsby’s dentist, says his patient is lying.

In an exclusive interview with WXIN on Sunday, Strickland presented a consent form for a full mouth teeth extraction signed by Grigsby on March 15. Strickland says Grigsby signed the document with encouragement from his wife, Amanda, before the procedure began.

“The claims that we have got are false accusations,” Strickland told reporters. “They’re malicious. The whole thing feels like an extraction extortion.”

Grigsby’s wife claimed that after several hours in the waiting room, she wanted to know what was going on with his procedure. She said doctors told her that they were scared the infection would spread from one tooth that was abscessed. They were expecting Strickland to pull only four teeth.

“There is blood all over him, all over his shirt,” she told WRTV, “and my husband is droopy eyed, not responsive.”

Strickland said, “Donny had multiple large cavities in almost every tooth,” and “the cavities were so extensive that they were into the nerves of multiple teeth.” After laying out the treatment options to Grigsby, “Donny signed the treatment plan and an Oral Surgery Consent Form for a full mouth extraction," Strickland said.

Strickland also claims that Grigsby failed to mention health history such as being on blood thinners, or his history of blood clotting when filling out his medical history form.

“It would have been good to know if he was on blood thinners, or if he wasn’t on blood thinners because either way it tells us there was some other historical issues going on,” Strickland told WXIN.  “And neither one was discussed.”

According to the reports, Strickland and his legal team are seeking a court order to allow him to comment in full detail about all of his interactions with the Grigsbys.

It’s like a scene from a horror movie.

An Indiana man is demanding answers after waking up from a routine dental procedure with no teeth in his mouth.

“I am so ashamed now,” Donny Grigsby told WRTV. “I have no teeth.”

Grigsby's wife, Amanda, said that after five hours of waiting at White River Dental, she learned that the dentist decided to pull all of Grigsby's teeth because he was afraid an infection would spread.

Amanda said she found Grigsby covered in blood. While at the dentist's office, they called an ambulance. She said that on the way to the hospital, he "coded" twice.

Grigsby is now back at home, still on oxygen after the procedure, according to WRTV.

This goldfish just got braces

A Pennsylvania veterinarian had a very creative solution for a goldfish whose jaw problems prevented it from being able to eat properly.

Dr. Brian Palmeiro at Lehigh Valley Veterinary Dermatology crafted a small mouth brace for the goldfish, named Mr. Hot Wing, out of a piece of a credit card.

Mr. Hot Wing, who was born without a jawbone and couldn’t keep his mouth open, had been suffering from breathing problems and an inability to eat. Now, he's able to do both.

A picture of the fish with the "braces" posted on Lehigh Valley Veterinary Dermatology's Facebook page went viral before being deleted.

The surgery cost Mr. Hot Wing's owner around $150, Mashable reported.

Palmeiro has also performed other procedures on fish, like one on a goldfish to remove skin tumors and another on a pleco fish for which he crafted a sling to support a dislocated pectoral fin.

Model battling cancer: ‘I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life’

Model Mieko Rye has struggled with her self-confidence ever since she began chemotherapy treatments. 

At one point, she didn't even want to look at herself in the mirror when she brushed her teeth

Now, she's hoping to help other women who are battling cancer feel empowered.

"When I first started to lose my hair and my eyebrows and eyelashes, I thought, 'This situation is so sick with irony because of my job,'" Rye told ABC News. "I would say it jokingly to people but I was really crying on the inside. I think that was the first step on my journey."

At one point, the 41-year-old decided no woman should ever feel the way she did. That's when she decided to pose for a photoshoot and post the pictures to Facebook. Her aim was to encourage and inspire other "pink ladies."

“With cancer comes destruction," Rye wrote in the post. "However, it has also provided me with the opportunity to rebuild from the inside out. I have shed what is no longer necessary and quite honestly, impeded my growth.

Rye noted that when she first started modeling 20 years ago, women of color did not embody the “American concept of beauty.”

“I was told I was too dark, too light, too curvy, or that my hair was too dry, too curly, or too big,” she wrote on Facebook. “Then the curvy Brazilian girls took over the fashion industry, God bless them, and my career took off.”

When she was diagnosed with cancer, she faced similar adversity:

"Many of the celebrated parts of a woman that our culture defines as beauty I no longer have: eyebrows, hair, eyelashes," Rye wrote. "Chemotherapy wreaks havoc on your body slowly. My sum of parts once interconnected and harmonious are now dissembled and out of tune."

And yet, Rye said cancer has helped her become confident and comfortable with being “alone:”

“When I say I am alone, I mean free of a man, career, role, or title I may have clung to in the past to define myself," she wrote. "My happiness does not depend on the love, reassurance, loyalty, or approval of another. I am simply Mieko. I have nothing to hide. I have stage 3 breast cancer, and I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life.”

Rye plans to have a bilateral mastectomy soon -- a decision she said was inspired by her 7-year-old son.

"I'm more happy now because I know myself so much better and I love myself so much more," she told ABC. "I'm going to own this and I want other women to be inspired and own it as well. It's more about the inner beauty and when that shines through, you're just as beautiful. You haven't lost anything. You've gained it."

While the actual process is much longer and arguably more painful, it only takes an unusual time-lapse video 20 seconds to show just why that’s the case.
