According to a sad, strange report from WTVR in Indianapolis, a local autistic man went to the Amazing Family Dental clinic complaining of a toothache. Crist's family said he only planned to have three teeth removed, but left the dentist's office completely toothless.
Crist, 21, said the dentist gave him sedatives to dull the pain, though they also made him "loopy."
"As they were doing they they were shooting my gums with the numbing gel," Crist said. "They took the first three that I asked them to and they just kept going."
Crist's family said they planned to file a complaint with the state of Indiana.
