Patient awarded £9.5k after claiming dentist needlessly pulled out her front tooth

TOOTH 'ANGUISH'

A PATIENT has been awarded £9,500 after claiming a dentist pulled out her front tooth when it was not necessary.

Katie Shipley, 27, said she suffered excruciating pain and alleged no anaesthetic was used.

Katie made an emergency appointment after developing an abscess.

She said Dr Saad Khokhar indicated the tooth was wobbly and needed to be extracted.

Administrator Katie said she was left embarrassed by her appearance.

She added: “I couldn’t believe I had lost a tooth at 27 for no reason — and it was right at the front of my mouth.”

Her claim was settled out of court and the dentist, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, did not admit liability.
