Virginia man takes on dentistry laws after daughter's death
Three years after his darkest days, Mario Blanco slowly is finding purpose in his daughter's death, leading him to take on Virginia's Board of Dentistry. Blanco is convinced there was inadequate emergency equipment in Dr. Michael Hechtkopf's dental office, including no working defibrillator. Hechtkopf settled with the Blanco family, and the board cited him for "absent or poorly documented" readings of Raven's vital signs and "pulse oximetry reading."
