|Alecia and Savannah White|
(Scroll down for video) A dentist is accused of removing all the teeth from a 4-year-old girl without the consent of her parents, according to press reports in Arizona.
Alecia White took her daughter to have routine dental work. The dentist informed her that her daughter had four cavities. White consented to do fillings.
The dentist sedated the 4-year-old Savannah, while White sat in the waiting room. When the procedure was done, White went home, but Savannah still felt dizzy.
Shortly thereafter, White looked at her daughter's mouth. She was, to put it mildly, surprised. All of
her daughter's teeth was covered with silver crowns.
"I did not consent for her whole mouth to be covered in silver," White said. "We went to the dentist just to do several fillings on cavities. Now, on a daily basis Savannah is telling me, 'Mommy, I do not like my teeth. I do not like my teeth,’ and it's really hard to hear her saying this every day,” White added.
The story has a happy ending though of some sorts. Savannah saw another dentist, who offered her to replace the silver crowns with white crowns, free of charge.
