Dentist accused of pulling tooth while on hoverboard
Would you like your dentist to pull your teeth out on a hoverboard? Especially while you lay unconscious dreaming about what to eat and waking up knowing nothing that happened. Meet Seth Lookhart, the dentist who thought this would be the “new standard of care” of extracting a sedated patient’s tooth.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Prosecutors say an Alaska dentist charged with Medicaid fraud pulled a sedated patient’s tooth while riding a hoverboard.
Seth Lookhart was charged with 17 counts of Medicaid fraud after prosecutors say he billed Medicaid $1.8 million last year for IV sedation used in procedures that didn’t call for it.
Prosecutors say in an indictment that investigators found a video on Lookhart’s phone of him riding a hoverboard while extracting a sedated patient’s tooth. They say he texted the video to his office manager and joked that it was a “new standard of care.”
Lets hope that no other dentists does this.
