Indiana Man To Sue Dentistry After He Wakes Up With No Teeth

Donny Grigsby was expecting to have four teeth removed during his trip to the dentist. 

This is probably the perfect reason why candy-lovers don't trust dentists.

According to RTV6Indiana native Donny Grigsby is seeking a possible malpractice lawsuit after all of his teeth were removed during a surgery last month at White River Dental.

Grisby's wife, Amanda says her husband was scheduled to have four teeth pulled out during the March appointment. After waiting five hours for her husband to come out of the surgery, she realized something was wrong.

"He had been put into a medically induced coma, and he was laying there crying," Amanda said. Due to fears of his infection allegedly spreading, the dentist decided to remove all of Grisby's teeth during the surgery. He flatlined twice while on the way to the hospital. "I am so ashamed now. I have no teeth," he said. While his wife was given the excuse about his infection, Grisby says he still doesn't understand why all of his teeth were taken out. Weeks after the surgery, he suffers from blood clots and now walks around with an oxygen tank.

Dr. Aaron Strickland and Dr. Brittany Curnutt are the practicing dentists at White River Dental. In statements released to the public through Karen Cantou Consulting, Dr. Strickland has indicated the surgery was explained before any teeth were pulled.

“Every patient and issue is different and we evaluate each and every part of the oral cavity and the health of the patient before presenting a treatment plan," Strickland said. "I assure you that every patient and/or legal guardian has the treatment explained to them thoroughly, and all the proper consent forms are signed prior to any treatment being performed on any patient at White River Dental.  I, as well as all of our well-trained staff, strive in every situation to make sure the patient and/or legal guardian understands all issues that may arise prior to accepting the treatment plan, as well as making sure they understand our due diligence in securing positive final results."

He also added a not so needed story about his own dental struggles to soften the blow.

"Dr. Strickland states that he was born with a congenital birth defect that has resulted in 18 oral related surgeries," the statement reads. “Because of my own dental history, it has been my life goal to be the best dentist I can possibly be and to treat my patient in the way that I want to be treated,” he said.

The Grigsbys haven't announced the damages they're seeking in the suit. The dentistry has called the accusations defamatory and are planning their own case in court.

Well, there's always veneers. They work well for Young Thug.

The Same Company That Owns Mr. Potato Head Now Owns Death Row Records

The same company that owns Monopoly, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Power Rangers, and thee Mr.Potato Head now owns the famous (and infamous) west coast record label Death Row Records.

Hasbro Toy Company purchased Entertainment One multimedia company, which also reportedly has a music division. According to Rolling Stone, E One's music label earned more than $30 million in 2019's first quarter. Six years ago, Entertainment One purchased Death Row's catalog for $280 million.

In a statement, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner expressed his excitement about owning the beloved and respected record label.

“The acquisition of eOne adds beloved story-led global family brands that deliver strong operating returns to Hasbro’s portfolio and provides a pipeline of new brand creation driven by family-oriented storytelling,” he said.

While Death Row records has gone down in history as one of hip-hop's most successful and influential labels, it's co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight has fallen from grace.

In October 2018, Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison for the 2015 hit-and-run death of Terry Carter, which was caught on surveillance. CNN reports he faced life in prison for one count of attempted murder after Knight maimed Cle "Bone" Sloan with his truck. Sloan survived the incident.

The May 2022 sequel of Black Panther is the farthest release date for any of the Marvel franchises. Thor: Love and Thunder is set for a Nov. 5, 2021 release date, while an as-yet-untitled Marvel film will make its way to theaters July 29, 2022.

Black Panther premiered in the U.S. in February 2018 and instantly became a massive success earning $700 million in the box office, and $1.3 billion globally. The earnings made the film Marvel's second-highest-grossing film of all time domestically. Avengers: Endgame, however, holds the title.

The film was not only an economic cultural success with its leading black cast, which included Boseman in the principle role starring alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Forrest Whitaker and Letitia Wright who played loveable and brilliant Princess Shuri.

May 2022 can't get here fast enough, but until then we'll just rewatch Black Panther every day until then.
