Woman fails to get compensation for lost teethBy Korea Herald

Gariela Andrews, 48, says that she cannot get compensation for the failed surgery as the private dentist who was in charge of the procedure has moved to another country, complicating matters.
“I have been left looking like a monster,” she told the Daily Mail. “My confidence has been affected, my speech has been affected, I can’t eat solid food and nobody does you justice.”
The General Dental Council has suspended the licence of the said self-employed dentist, Piotr Tadeusz Reichel “for protection of the public and in the public interest” in relation to treatments of several other patients.
Gabriela said that she had initially opted for private treatment because she thought it was the cheapest option.

충격! 女, 임플란트 잘못 받아 치아 모두 잃어
영국에 한 여성이 700만원이 넘는 치아 임플란트 수술을 받았다가 치아를 모두 잃게 된 사연이 알려져 충격을 주고 있다.
가브리엘라 앤드루스(Gabriela Andrews)는 시술 비용을 절약하기 위해 개인 치과 병원을 찾았다고 한다.
그러나 수술 실패로 인해 그녀는 2700만원이 넘게 드는 추가 비용을 내고 수술을 받아야만 치아를 되찾을 수 있게 되었다.
“마치 괴물이 된 기분”이라고 그녀는 말하면서 “자신감을 잃고 발음도 이상해지고 음식도 제대로 못먹는다”고 털어놓았다.
한편, 시술을 담당했던 개인 치과의사 피오트르 타데우시 라이헬(Piotr Tadeusz Reichel)는 폴란드로 이주하여 법적 절차를 밟기가 어려워진 상황인 것으로 알려졌다.
