A Canadian mother is alleging that her 4-year-old daughter suffered permanent brain damage after having routine dental surgery, according to Dentistry IQ.
Apryl Roulette of Manitoba on Oct. 11 brought her daughter Jairlyn to Winnipeg to Children’s Dental World for several procedures, Dentistry IQ reported. The child was given an general anesthetic so she could get fillings, caps and an extraction, but she went into cardiac arrest at one point.
Jairlyn is at a local hospital, but her mother says the child is “awake but unresponsive,” according to Dentistry IQ. It quoted the quoted the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, which basically said that in-office sedation and general anesthesia are safe.
Well obviously not safe enough! Sure you would agree with me if it were your loved one!! Hope she sues , I feel for the child so much! Her childhood was taken because of careless doctors..
that is a very irresponsible and uneducated response. doctors performing the procedure and administering the anesthesia are certified and extremely knowledgeable… and would only perform the procedure if it was deemed necessary. horrible and unexpected events can occur with even the safest procedure, and this may unfortunately be what happened in this case. why would you hope the family sues? what a spiteful and malicious thing to say. doctors at the clinic have treated and helped hundreds of children, and are surely devastated by this incident. do not call them careless without knowing the facts. infact, it is your comment that is careless and completely misinformed.
