Patient claims local dentist removed all of his teeth without permission

 

The family of a 21-year-old autistic man claims their loved one spent the last two days in the hospital. Christopher Crist has been fighting an infection allegedly at the hands of an Indianapolis dentist. That dentist still refuses to tell his side of the story.

Crist doesn’t have any teeth now.

“They pulled every last one of them,” said Crist.

Crist said his dentist took out 29 teeth that he did not want pulled while he was sedated.

“I am going to look like a freak now,” said Crist.  “Honest to God.”

After the original story aired, Fox 59 got more than a dozen calls, all telling a similar story.  That story was that the dentist at Amazing Family Dental has been taking out too many teeth.

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.’”

For a second time, Fox 59 went to Amazing Family Dental for an explanation.  The doctor never came out of his office, instead he told his staff to call the police.

The family of Crist still plans on suing the dentist.  Fox 59 is not releasing the dentist’s name because he has not been named in any legal action yet.
