Boy Pulls Out Teeth After Dad Neglects to Bring Him to the Dentist
A man from Pennsylvania has pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment. His teenage son tried to pull out his own teeth that were bothering him because he hadn’t been taken to a dentist.
“The Express-Times of Easton reports that 40-year-old Francisco Torres told a Northampton County judge Monday that he ‘procrastinated’ about getting the boy dental care.”
Fox News says that the boy tried to pull the teeth after several months of complaining about the pain. He needed emergency surgery to have fragments of two teeth that he broke.
He is now 14.
Would you ever wait even a week to take him/her to the dentist?
Do you think this is abuse?
