Sup Travellers?! There comes a time in your life when you just need to go to the dentist but going to the dentist shouldn't be the last time of your life. It should just be a time where you sit uncomfortably as a nosey dentist pokes stuff in your mouth, drugs you and sometimes numbs your gums. However, a 3 year old girl from Hawaii wasn't so lucky to just leave with numb gums and a funny high. She left brain damaged, then eventually.....DEAD!

CNN reports that 3 year old Finley Boyle died after complications she experienced during a trip to the dentist. Her mother Ashley Boyle took her to Hawaii's Island Dentistry for Children in November and she said that she was told the child needed six fillings and four root canals. She carried her daughter back to the dentist on December 3rd to undergo the root canals. Finley was administered five different drugs, including Demarol and other sedatives.

The drugs were apparently in incorrect dosages and caused young Finley to go into a cardiac arrest. She then suffered severe and permanent brain damage due to the medications, and was left in a vegetative state with the ability to breathe on her own, but unable to survive without a feeding tube. The tube was removed last week causing young Finley to succumb to her complications.

The little girl's parents are suing Dr. Lilly Geyer, the dentist who administered the drugs. The lawsuit, filed against Lilly Geyer and her practice, Island Dentistry for Children, alleges improper medications with incorrect dosages were administered to the girl on December 3, according to court documents filed this week. It is still uncertain if the justice system will take the side of the parents but it is definitely a fact that justice should take its toll on Dr. Geyer and her practice. RIP Finley Boyle.
