Dentist pulled out teeth ‘as a lesson’

`A dentist who pulled out an elderly woman’s teeth without anaesthetic “to teach her a lesson” has been thrown out of the profession.

David Quelch left the 87-year-old with blood pouring from her mouth after she made a complaint about previous treatment at his hands, a discipline hearing was told yesterday. [..]

“I told him I had pain and he told me he was going to extract my teeth. I objected, I didn’t think it was necessary. He ignored my remarks and pulled out the tooth. I was bleeding profusely.”

She added: “I said I didn’t want my tooth removed, he pushed me back, pushing me hard across my chest and extracted the second tooth. All I wanted was a filling.”‘
