Baltimore School Removed 9-Year-Old’s Teeth Without Telling Mom
A Baltimore mother is outraged after her son’s removed three of his teeth WITHOUT her permission reports CBS Local. Shanda Flemming says her 9-year-old son is now missing several of his teeth after his school pulled them out during a dental program event.
The elementary school claims the mom signed a permission slip, but Flemming thought it was for routine cleanings.
“I’m angry about this. I don’t think that it should have happened like that,” says Flemming. She says she was blindsided when Michael came home with a swollen mouth.
“They just said they was gonna clean my teeth,” says Michael. But there’s more — the procedure caused Michael to miss the bus, meaning he had to walk almost a full mile to get back home.
“He walked home alone after having three teeth extracted from his mouth. He could have fell out or anything,” says Flemming.
