Angry parent attacks California dentist on Facebook
A California pediatric dentist says he is being unfairly accused of mistreating a patient by an angry parent who created a Facebook page to attack him following the extraction of his young son's tooth. The page, which attracted more than 200 members in its first 48 hours, illustrates the power of social media and its potential to do harm as well as good. Chris Cook of Bakersfield, Calif., created the "I Hate Dr. Dove of Bakersfield" page recently, claiming that pediatric dentist Edward Dove, DDS, extracted his 5-year-old son's tooth on Aug. 22 without anesthesia. Cook also claims his son vomited, screamed, and urinated on himself while being held down by several assistants during the procedure.
