The Block star Jess Eva reveals new look after dentist horror

Block star Jess Eva had previously said if there was one thing she could change about herself, it would be her teeth.

“I hate my teeth,” she said in an interview with WHO magazine in 2018.

But after 25 years of having never visited a dentist, the reality star finally built the courage to go — unveiling her flashy set of pearly whites.

Talking on her Triple M radio show Moonman in the Morning this week, Eva told her co-hosts Lawrence Mooney and Chris Page she hadn’t visited a dentist in more than two decades because of a traumatising childhood experience.

She explained that her fear started “in the school dental van”, where the trainee dentists from her local area would practise on children.

“They would rock up outside the school and because they’re still training (it’s not their fault) they would say

A dentist who pulled someone’s tooth while riding a hoverboard has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for fraud and ‘unlawful dental acts’

  • An Alaska dentist who pulled a woman’s tooth while riding a hoverboard has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for fraud, embezzlement, and “unlawful dental acts.”
  • The video was part of prosecutors’ case against Seth Lookhart, who was found guilty of defrauding his customers by administering unnecessary procedures to rack up Medicare charges.
  • Prosecutors are seeking $2.2 million in damanges, and Lookhart could also permanently lose his medical license in the state.

An Alaska dentist who was videotaped pulling a woman’s tooth while riding a hoverboard is now facing jail time after he was found guilty by an Alaska court.

Seth Lookhart went viral when the video surfaced as part of an investigation into his Anchorage dental practice last year. In the 2016 video, Lookhart rolls up to a sedated patient, pulls her tooth while standing on the hoverboard, and rolls away. Prosecutors said they obtained the video after

Hoverboard-riding dentist sentenced to 12 years for Medicaid fraud

An Anchorage dentist captured on video extracting a patient’s tooth as he rode a hoverboard was sentenced to 12 years for Medicaid fraud and other crimes.

Seth Lookhart’s antics “darn near killed some people,” Alaska Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton said at sentencing Monday.

“And then, after that,” the judge said, “you bragged about it in your texts.”

The 2016 hoverboard stunt, which took place as Lookhart performed a tooth extraction on a sedated patient, preceded a wider probe of his practices.

Wolverton on Monday quoted that patient’s testimony from December: “What you did was outrageous, narcissistic and crazy,” Veronica Wilhelm told the court.

The 35-year-old dentist was convicted in January of more than 40 counts, including “unlawful dental acts,” reckless endangerment and Medicaid fraud.

Evidence presented at trial showed other patients were left unattended while sedated, had breathing and heart complications and in some cases nearly died.

Anchorage dentist who defrauded Medicaid and extracted patient tooth while riding hoverboard sentenced to prison

An Anchorage dentist who extracted a patient’s tooth while on a hoverboard was sentenced Monday to 12 years in prison for dozens of charges including Medicaid fraud.

Seth Lookhart was captured on video extracting the tooth from the unconscious patient. Anchorage Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton said Monday that Lookhart nearly killed several patients by frequently sedating them for extended periods of time.

“In reviewing all this over and over again, I have this visceral response — you darn near killed some people,” he said.

Lookhart was found guilty by a jury in January on 46 charges including Medicaid fraud, embezzlement, reckless endangerment and unlawful dental acts. He formerly worked at Alaska Dental Arts in 2015 but bought the business the next year and changed its name to Clear Creek Dental.

Charges against Lookhart were filed in 2017 after a former employee told investigators the dentist was increasing profits by

Dr. Louis A. Surace.




A former Lockport pediatric dentist will serve as long as five years in state prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to sexually assaulting a girl.

Louis A. Surace, 58, of O’Connor Drive, Town of Lockport, accepted a preindictment plea deal in which he admitted to a reduced charge of attempted first-degree criminal sexual act. It’s a violent felony which carries a mandatory prison term.

The possible sentences range from 3½ to 15 years, but State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. announced that after conferring with the attorneys, he had agreed to impose a sentence of no more than five years “with my hopes of providing for closure for the alleged victim.”

In addition to the prison term, Surace will be placed on parolelike postrelease supervision. Kloch said he will choose a duration of

Stalking: Dentist not told of ‘murder kit’ stalker’s release

Media caption“I’m a victim but feel like an inconvenience”

A dentist who was secretly stalked by a former patient has spoken of his shock that he was not told immediately his stalker had been released from custody.

Prosecutors said Thomas Baddeley – who was found with a “murder kit” – could only be charged with a minor offence because his victim Dr Ian Hutchinson had been unaware he was being stalked.

A scheme for informing victims when an offender is released did therefore not apply, the Ministry of Justice said.

They said protocols had been followed.

Baddeley, 42, from Bristol, secretly stalked the dentist for more than four years and was jailed for a total of 16 months in August after admitting stalking without fear, harm or intimidation and two counts of possessing offensive weapons.

An indefinite restraining order was imposed, including

How to safely go to the dentist during the pandemic

My tongue first detected the problem when it caught a sharp edge on my teeth: A hefty hunk of my back right molar was missing. I’m not sure how it happened, but it meant that after months of avoiding any sort of physical closeness with other people, I needed to brave the dentist’s chair.

With the pandemic raging across the United States, the office I entered in Alexandria, Virginia, looked very different from the one I had visited months before. Two cups of pens sat on the receptionist’s desk, one for “clean” writing utensils and the other for those recently used. A plexiglass partition divided me from the rest of the office behind, and everyone—myself included—donned a mask.

Dental work is a uniquely risky environment for spreading SARS-CoV-2, since medical practitioners work face-to-face with open-mouthed patients for extended periods of time. “We, unfortunately, work in a danger zone,” says Mark
