Dangerous dentist - level 2

Dangerous dentist - level 2

18-03-2016 07:00

In central France last week, a fifty-one-year-old French dentist arrived at court. People accused him of mutilating over a hundred people. French media is calling him “the butcher”.

Many of the patients were present at the court and they shared their horror stories. One woman said that she went to the dentist to have braces fitted, but the dentist painfully pulled eight teeth from her mouth. She said that she bled for days.

If the court finds the dentist guilty, he might go to prison for 10 years and pay 375,000 euro.

Difficult words: accuse (to say that somebody is guilty of a crime), mutilate (to damage, to hurt), braces (wires in the mouth which straighten the teeth).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What should happen to the dentist?
