In March, Donny Grisby, says he went to White River Dental expecting to have four teeth removed.
His wife, Amanda, says after several hours in the waiting room she demanded answers.
“What do you mean you elected to pull all of his teeth?” she said she asked.
She said she was told they were afraid that the infection would spread from the one tooth that was abscessed.

“There is blood all over him, all over his shirt,” she said, “and my husband is droopy eyed, not responsive.”
She says they called an ambulance and her husband coded twice on the way to Columbus Regional Hospital.
Donny remembers very little, but he’ll never forget when it all sunk in.
“I am so ashamed now,” he said.”I have no teeth. I woke up with no clothes on. I was scared.”
He says he still has blood clots as a result of the work.
What’s worse, he says, is he still doesn’t know why his teeth were taken.
“I just want to get teeth in my head and go on,” he said.
A local news station, WRTV, reports that the dentist and the dental office have not commented on the allegations.
The family says they plan to have an attorney file a malpractice suit.
