Patient attacks dentist with sword; says wrong tooth pulled
An unhappy patient severely slashed a Bangkok dentist with a small sword after accusing him of pulling the wrong tooth, police said Wednesday. Somboon Saisida, 43, stormed Pornpoj Suriwong's clinic on Tuesday and assaulted him over allegations that he mistreated Somboon three years ago by leaving an infected tooth in his mouth and pulling a healthy one, police Lieut. Prapas Yongsatar said.
Somboon, who works as an ice cream vendor, claimed this error led to weakness in his left arm and leg, and eventually left him incapable of paddling his ice cream tricycle cart, forcing him to stop working.
"The suspect said he wanted to take revenge on the victim who made him suffer from performing the wrong treatment on him," Prapas said.
Somboon attacked the dentist with a small sword, breaking his arm and badly cutting his face, police said.

Not a dentist visit goes by that I don't go packing when I get my teeth worked on -- not that I don't feel for the Dentist. After seeing Marathon Man, my skin crawls at the thought of the DRILL!
It is only with great sadness, this was not one of Dr. Barton Corbin's Patients that was treated!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN-BOO to all!
