A Baltimore mother was outraged after she discovered that her son’s elementary school performed a serious dental procedure on him, and when you learn the details, you might get angry too.
Fleming said she was blindsided when her son, Michael, came home with a swollen mouth and with three of his teeth missing. Fleming said she did sign a permission slip for the dental plan, but she added that she thought it only gave the school permission to perform routine cleanings.
“I’m angry about this. I don’t think that it should have happened like that,” said Flemming.
To make matters worse, KMOV also reported that Michael never even received any medication for pain after the procedure. Wow. This poor child’s experience really went from bad to worse. And that wasn’t all: He missed the bus because of the procedure and had to walk home.
“He walked home alone after having three teeth extracted from his mouth. He could have fell out or anything,” Flemming said.
Fleming added that her son had an appointment with the family dentist on the Monday after the extractions were made.
As of Friday, Baltimore Public Schools did not respond to WJZ’s request for comments, citing privacy concerns under federal law. However, the school can speak with the mother, which is something they need to do.
Watch an interview with Flemming below:
This kind of reckless behavior by a public school is all kinds of messed up.
It would have taken only a few minutes to call Flemming, yet the school didn’t do it. She has every right to be furious, and Baltimore City Schools owe her an explanation.
