 Dentist in the Dock After Pulling Out All of Patientís Teeth

An Indianapolis dentist is facing a huge legal trouble after he pulled out all 29 teeth from an autistic man who had gone in for a simple dental procedure.

Christopher Crist had gone to the Amazing Family Dental to have just three of his teeth pulled. However the dentist pulled off all of his teeth and the dentist's office has refused to hand over Crist's file when the family asked for it.

When the incident was aired on a radio station, it received a number of calls from people who claimed that the dentist in question had pulled off too many teeth in other cases as well. The family has decided to lodge a complaint with the state over the incident.
