The Checkup: Polish Dentist Yanks All of Ex’s Teeth
• Today’s top story takes us to Poland, where a dentist has been arrested for pulling out all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth. Let me explain: The guy dumped the dentist for another woman, the Daily Mail reports, but he still showed up at her office a few days afterwards complaining of a toothache. The dentist, 34-year-old Anna Mackowiak, put her former lover under heavy sedation, then proceeded to pluck out every last one of his teeth. She wrapped his head in bandages to keep him from opening his mouth but the boyfriend said he knew something was wrong as soon as he woke up (well, duh). The dentist, who’s under investigation for malpractice, said she tried to be “professional” but just couldn’t help herself. The lesson here: Don’t date your freaking dentist.
