In the old days, probably before you were born, there were a lot of drugs that destroyed the teeth of the unborn, along with some which caused severe deformities.

Thalidomide was one that resulted in the fin-like hands and under-developed limbs. Very sad.

My aunt, who is 66 or so, had rotten teeth her entire life from whatever they gave my grandmother and she has the mental capacity of about a 12-13 year old.

im not sure the cause (and that's a great point!) but it's something that seems to be genetic... my dad's dad had the same issue.. so did my dad's uncle and brother... and my dad's brother's kids (my cousins) had the same issue as well. seems to be all the males in my family

except me.

This is so sad. She became a victim of adult stupidly, which is inexcusable.
Parents/Doctors/Dentist/Nursing Staff/ permitting extensive Root canal work on a 3 year old. You have to be kidding me.

Poor baby. I never considered the dangers of anesthesia until the last few years when I started hearing stories like this. That's a lot of work to do on a 3 year old.

it's mind blowing to me that a supposedly trained medical professional would think that was a good idea... and it's even more mind blowing to me that alarm bells and red flags didnt go off in the parent's mind. if my kid's dentist told me they planned on doing that much work at once, i'd find a new dentist.

Report: Hawaii eyes dentist after death of child
January 8
The Associated Press

HONOLULU — The state has begun an investigation of a Hawaii dentist whose 3-year-old patient died after falling into a coma while she was heavily sedated with different drugs during a procedure, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

Ashley Boyle, the mother of Finley Puleo Boyle, said her daughter never woke up after losing consciousness and suffering massive brain damage following sedation on Dec. 3 at Island Dentistry for Children on Kailua, the office of dentist Lilly Geyer.

Boyle and her husband, Evan Boyle, have filed a negligence lawsuit, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://is.gd/62Lqjc) reported.

The girl died Friday at Hospice Hawaii's Kailua house. Rick Fried Jr., the couple's attorney, said an autopsy will be performed.

Geyer's practice has shut down and her attorney, John Nishimoto, told the newspaper that because of the pending lawsuit, it would be inappropriate to comment "on any of the unproven allegations that have been reported to the media."

A call to Nishimoto by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.

The Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs is investigating Geyer, the newspaper said.

Ashley Boyle said Geyer told her after an initial visit that her daughter had 10 cavities and needed four procedures also known as baby root canals. A later examination by another dentist done while the girl was comatose showed just a few cavities, Fried said.

"The problem with the X-rays that Dr. Geyer did is that they were of such poor quality that the dentist I had review them said they were essentially nondiagnostic," the lawyer said.

Fried said the 38-pound child was given the maximum doses of Demerol and hydroxyzine and 40 percent more than the maximum of chloral hydrate for a child her size — if just one of the drugs was administered.

Records from Island Dentistry show that during a 26-minute gap in monitoring the girl's vital signs, the oxygen saturation level fell from normal to 65 percent or less, Fried said. According to pediatric dentistry guidelines, oxygen-level checks every five minutes are recommended.

During the emergency, a pediatrician with a practice down the hall was summoned to help.

Re: 3 Year Old Hawaiian Girl Dies After Dental Procedures

My question would be either why in the hell does a 3 year old need 4 root canals and multiple cavity fillings? I dont think they would do it all at the same time on an adult let alone a 3 year old. Or why didnt the parents help their young daughter with showing her or doing it for her proper dental hygiene????
