Shanda was furious that no one had informed her of the serious dental procedure. She also claimed that the permission slip she had signed misled her to believe that her son was simply undergoing a cleaning. Instead, her son now had three noticeable gaps in his smile.
“I’m angry about this. I don’t think that it should have happened like that,” she explained to Baltimore TV station WJZ in January 2017. Shanda added that the first she knew of the procedure was when her boy returned home with a swollen mouth.
