    Dentist removed teeth of grumbling patient

    # Woman, 87, was denied anaesthetic
    # Practitioner is struck off register

    A dentist who pulled out an elderly woman’s teeth without anaesthetic “to teach her a lesson” has been struck off.

    David Quelch left the retired nurse, who was 87, with blood pouring from her mouth from two extractions after she had complained to her doctor about the quality of previous treatment by the dentist.

    After a three-day hearing the General Dental Council found Mr Quelch, 54, guilty of serious professional misconduct and ordered his name to be removed from the register.

    The woman, referred to as Patient A, gave her evidence via a video link. She said: “Mr Quelch told me to sit in the chair and raised my feet above my head. 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.

    “He lowered my head and pushed my chest and proceeded to extract the other tooth against my will. I was very upset and alarmed.”

    She said that she asked to spit blood into a bowl at the side of the dental chair but Mr Quelch had refused and said: “No, don’t spit in the bowl, you might have Aids.”

    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.”

    A nurse was pushing down on her head throughout the procedure, she said.

    The patient had attended Mr Quelch’s practice in Bexhill, East Sussex, for a filling in September 2001 and said that she found his attitude casual and unprofessional. During a second visit three months later she informed him that she had complained to a doctor about the dental treatment that she had received. It was then that he was said to have removed the teeth against her will and shouted: “That’ll teach you not to complain to the doctor.”

    She told the hearing: “I was very shocked and frightened.” She said that Mr Quelch had pricked her gum with a needle but had not administered any anaesthetic before the extractions. She said that she was bedridden for three days after the treatment.

    The panel concluded that, although Mr Quelch had failed to explain the risks or alternative treatment, the patient had not told him that he should not extract the second tooth.

    Jason Leitch, the chairman of the panel, said: “The committee is concerned that, in view of his unacceptable lack of insight and complacency, he presents a serious risk to patients.”

    Mr Quelch, who qualified in 1976, declined to attend the hearing and was not available for comment later.

    The first thing that popped into my head was Steve Martin singing this song:

    When I was younger, just a bad little kid,
    My mama noticed funny things I did,
    Like shootin' puppies with a B B gun
    I'd poison guppies, and when I was done
    I'd find a pussycat and bash in its head
    That's when my mama said

    [CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
    What did she say?

    [ORIN]
    She said, "My boy, I think someday
    You'll find a way
    To make your natural tendencies pay
    You'll be a dentist
    You have a talent for causin' things pain
    Son, be a dentist
    People will pay you to be inhumane
    Your temperament's wrong for the priesthood
    And teaching would suit you still less
    Son, be a dentist
    You'll be a success

    [CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
    Here he is, folks the leader of the plaque!
    Watch him suck up that gas!
    Oh, my god!
    He's a dentist and he'll never ever be any good
    Who wants their teeth done by the Marquis de Sade?

    [PATIENT]
    Oh that hurts! I'm not numb!

    [ORIN]
    Oh, shut up. Open wide. here I come!
    I am your dentist

    [PATIENT]
    Goodness gracious!

    [ORIN]
    And I enjoy the career that I picked

    [CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
    Really love it

    [ORIN]
    I am your dentist

    [PATIENT]
    Fitting braces

    [ORIN]
    And I get off on the pain I inflict

    [CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
    Really love it

    [ORIN]
    I thrill when I drill a bicuspid

    [CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
    Bicuspid

    [ORIN]
    It's swell though they tell me I'm maladjusted
    And though it may cause my patients distress,
    Somewhere, somewhere in heaven above me
    I know, I know, that my mama's proud of me
    Oh, mama
    'Cause I'm a dentist and a success
    Say ah!

    [PATIENT]
    Ah!

    [ORIN]
    Say ah!

    [PATIENT]
    Ah!

    [ORIN]
    Say ah!

    [PATIENT]
    Ah!

    [ORIN]
    Now spit!

    Why should the woman HAVE to say she didn't want the second tooth pulled when she didn't want the first one pulled. The man should be sued and jailed for that kind of behavior.

    And people wonder why I hate dentists.

    In the words of Paul Teutul Jr. "It's like pulling teeth, innit?"
