TOOTH HURTY

Posted

Skylar King, 28, filed a lawsuit in Clayton, Missouri, in April against dentist Mark Meyers (and his Same Day Dentures clinic) for a 2009 session in which Meyers somehow obtained King’s consent to extract all 32 of his teeth and provide dentures, promptly after obtaining $5,235 on King’s mother’s credit card.

Dr. Meyers insisted King actually requested the procedure, even though X-rays revealed at least 28 of the teeth were treatable.
