A mother is outraged after her third grader came home from school with three of his teeth missing. She says his elementary school performed a dental procedure she never knew about.
A Baltimore City mom is looking for answers: Why did the school allow serious dental work — without making a single phone call to parents.
9-year-old Michael is still brought to tears by the pain. He’s now missing three teeth — pulled out by a dental program visiting his school. His mother, Shanda Flemming, tells WJZ she never was notified that the procedure was happening.
“And then two on this side. One top and one bottom,” says Flemming.
Baltimore City Schools says Flemming 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.
