Story Of Jilted Teeth-Pulling Dentist Was A Hoax!

Remember the tale of the jilted Polish dentist who pulled all the pearly whites from the mouth of her ex-boyfriend? Turns out the story has no teeth.

The report that dentist  Anna Mackowiak removed all her ex-boyfriend’s teeth after he came into her dental office complaining of a toothache turned out to be false. The popular story was picked up by Yahoo! News, MSNBC and dozens of other major U.S. media outlets. Kudos to MSNBC contributor Erin Tennant  for chipping away at the story and getting to the truth of the matter. Here’s what Tennant learned:

  • The Polish police agency in the region where the incident reportedly took place is not investigating any such case.
  • Poland’s Chamber of Physicians and Dentists is not investigating any case like the one reported. Nor, is a dentist named Anna Maćkowiak listed on its professional register.
  • News outlets in Poland did not report the story. Some, however, reported the foreign media’s coverage of what they called a “prank.”
  • The original story was traced back to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper. The writer Simon Tomlinson,  says he does not know where the story originated, despite its bearing his byline. “I’ve drawn a bit of a blank,” he told MSNBC.
  • American Dental Association’s  national spokesperson, David Johnson Jr., said the story was highly improbable because most dentists are equipped to administer drugs only for conscious sedation dentistry. That would mean the man would’ve known all his teeth were being pulled as it was happening.

It looks like, in this case, the only thing pulled was our leg. How do you react to this kind of prank?

Dentist Pulls Out Extreme Revenge On Ex-Boyfriend’s Teeth

A Polish woman is facing three years in prison after she removed all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth during dental surgery just days after their breakup.

“I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions,” Anna Mackowiak, 34, told the Austrian Times. “But when I saw him lying there I just thought, ‘What a bastard’ and decided to take all his teeth out.”

Marek Olszewski, 45, reportedly showed up at Mackowiak’s dental office complaining of toothache just days after he broke up with her. She then allegedly gave him a “heavy dose” of anesthetic, locked the door and began removing all of his teeth one at a time.

“I knew something was wrong because when I woke up I couldn’t feel any teeth and my jaw was strapped up with bandages,” Olszewski said. “She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that I would need to see a specialist… I didn’t have any reason to doubt her, I mean I thought she was a professional.”

Adding to his trauma, Olszewski said his new girlfriend has already left him over his now toothless appearance. Mackowiak is currently being investigated for medical malpractice.
