COLUMBUS, Ind. – It’s like a scene from a horror movie.

An Indiana man is demanding answers after waking up from a routine dental procedure with no teeth in his mouth.

“I am so ashamed now,” Donny Grigsby told WRTV. “I have no teeth.”

Grigsby's wife, Amanda, said that after five hours of waiting at White River Dental, she learned that the dentist decided to pull all of Grigsby's teeth because he was afraid an infection would spread.
