A rogue dentist who was filmed extracting a patient’s tooth while riding a hoverboard has been jailed for 12 years for dangerous dentistry.
Seth Lockhart shot to notoriety after he was filmed pulling the tooth from unconscious patient Veronica Wilhelm while riding the gadget, and was jailed in Anchorage, Alaska, on Monday for crimes including knocking patients out without receiving adequate training – or their consent.
Judge Michael Wolverton said: ‘Lookhart almost killed many patients by performing anesthesia thousands of times without training or consent, on patients outside his scope of training and expertise, while stealing money from Medicaid and embezzling from his bosses.’
Lockhart let his office manager Shauna Cranford – who was in on the fraud – extract a patient’s tooth despite her not having any dental training.
