A dentist in Munich, Germany, has been ordered to pay 20,000 euros ($21,000) in compensation to a patient after he removed all the man’s teeth in an effort to cure his erectile dysfunction and schizophrenia.
According to court documents, the dentist, known only as K., was sued after pulling out all his patient’s teeth for no good reason.
The patient, known only as Alex S., apparently thought his teeth were destroying the flow of energy in his body and that having them removed would cure his erectile dysfunction and his schizophrenia.

The dentist, however, who apparently does boast of being a recognized healer, claims he removed his patient’s teeth because the man was suffering from inflammation of the bone and that he was allergic to the fillings in his teeth.
According to the Local, he told the court that the treatment was essential for the patient, who reportedly lives in the forest and eats only raw foods. He didn’t, however, mention how a man with no teeth would be able to continue to eat raw foods. The dentist told the judge that his patient was “completely normal.”
However, further evidence showed that in a letter to his lawyer, the dentist had claimed that his patient was an “indigo child,” a person seen in esoteric circles to be special spiritual sons of a new era.
In the letter the dentist said, “He is not psychotic, he’s marvelous,” and that by removing his poisonous teeth, he had healed him. But he did also add in the letter that his patient “was clearly off his head.”

The court called for an independent medical examination of the patient and this, apparently, proved that the dentist’s claims were untrue. In actual fact, it seems the inflammation only started when the dentist began to remove all 19 of the patient’s remaining teeth, which happened over a period of four weeks.
Besides stating that the work was necessary, according to the Daily Mail the dentist claims his patient has failed to pay him 50,000 euros ($54,000) for the dental work and that he denies having any knowledge of the mental problems of his patient.
However, according to the judge, the dentist should have recognized that his patient “didn’t quite tick right,” especially as he expected a dentist to cure his erectile dysfunction and schizophrenia.
Between all the conflicting stories in court and on top of the 20,000 euros ($21,000) compensation to his patient, the dentist has now also been ordered to pay the cost of his patient’s necessary implants.
While it is unknown whether the patient’s erectile dysfunction and schizophrenia have been cured using other methods, the dentist has apparently decided its time to give up dentistry. He will reportedly be working full time, researching vibrations of the body’s cells.
On the subject of dentists, the Inquisitr recently reported on the odd tale of an office worker who pretended to be a dentist when the real doctor was out. At least she wasn’t trying to cure anyone’s erectile dysfunction at the time.
