Dental Legal News: The Pediatric Dentist Protects Kids' Teeth, Parents' Freedom

The Pediatric Dentist Protects Kids’ Teeth, Parents’ Freedom

The pediatric dentist is important for children's dental healthThe pediatric dentist should be a part of every kid’s childhood.

And the consequences of avoiding the children’s dentist can go far beyond cavities and tooth decay… Just ask the Washington state mother who was convicted in court for not having taken her son to the dentist.

The developmentally disabled 10-year-old boy had more than one abscessed tooth; in court papers, one doctor compared the boy’s tooth pain to “being shot with a nail gun.”

The boy had several teeth removed. His mother claimed that she had no idea a tooth abscess could be life-threatening, and that she did not have the money to take him to a pediatric dentist.

After a jury trial, she was convicted of second-degree criminal mistreatment.
