Katie made an emergency appointment after developing an abscess.

She said Dr Saad Khokhar indicated the tooth was wobbly and needed to be extracted.

Administrator Katie said she was left embarrassed by her appearance.

彼女は付け加えた: “I couldn’t believe I had lost a tooth at 27 for no reason — and it was right at the front of my mouth.”

Her claim was settled out of court and the dentist, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, did not admit liability.
