Dentist makes mother's worst nightmare a reality

Florida Dentist Faces Lawsuit for Performing Abusive Procedures on Children

After a mother brought her daughter to a Florida dentist's office for a routine dental procedure in May, she was shocked when a nurse emerged to let the mother know that there had been an accident involving her daughter.

When Brandy Motley entered the room to see her daughter, she saw that he daughter was covered in blood and clearly suffering. After posting about the incident on social media, other parents were encouraged to come forward.

Now, Dr. Howard Schneider has been accused of abusing children while performing unnecessary dental procedures. The doctor continuously makes parents sit in the waiting room, claiming that children are easier to deal with when their parents aren't present.

Parents of the children in Schneider's care say that he unnecessarily extracted their children's teeth without anesthetic. In addition, their children often left his office with bruises and scrapes on their necks.

Schneider relinquished his medical license, closed down his practice, and fled the Florida area in May of 2015. While he still claims to be innocent, more and more lawsuits from angry parents who experienced similar incidents to Motley's are piling up.
