'Horror dentist' sentenced to prison for mutilating patients' mouths
A French court found a Dutch dentist guilty of assault and fraud Tuesday and sentenced him to eight years in prison.
Jacobus Van Nierop, 51, showed no signs of emotion when the court in the central town of Nevers returned its verdict. The court barred him from practicing dentistry for life.
About 100 plaintiffs had filed complaints against Van Nierop, ranging from having multiple healthy teeth removed, drill bits left in their gums and teeth, abscesses, recurrent infections and misshapen mouths after he did work on patients.
Van Nierop, dubbed the "horror dentist" by the French media, was accused of causing "mutilations" or "permanent disabilities" to scores of patients from 2009 to 2012, of overcharging patients and billing them for imaginary procedures and of illegally practicing dentistry in France.
