The parents of a 17-year-old girl are suing the oral surgeon and anesthesiologist who performed wisdom tooth surgery on their daughter last March.
During the surgery the young girl’s heart rate began to decline and her blood oxygen level declined. According to reports, the official cause of death was determined to be hypoxia, which is directly related to the negligence of the surgeon and anesthesiologist.
Her parents believe that if the doctors would have been more cautious and attentive during the surgery that their daughter would still be alive today. They are hoping to raise awareness about the risks of dental surgeries through their dental malpractice lawsuit.
