it is a heart breaking, pictures of those kids..

 

I have come across of 2 the articles and World News with Diane Sawyer news video about

people who are trying to raise awarness of dangers that the people, especially children

might experience at the dental office. I just wanted to share it with you:

"Who thinks that they're gonna take their daughter to the dentist and never bring her home?" said Ommettress Travis of Chicago, whose five-year-old daughter Diamond died after being sedated prior to have cavities filled and teeth capped.

 

More than a dozen children have died after being sedated by dentists, according to the Raven Maria Blanco Foundation, which seeks to alert parents to the potential dangers of the increasingly widespread use of oral sedatives on patients as young as 18-months old.
