(KGTV) - Was a dentist really recorded pulling a sedated patient's tooth while standing on a swaying hoverboard?

Yes.

Alaskan dentist Seth Lookhart did the procedure in 2016.

The footage played in court last week shows him swaying slightly while extracting a tooth, then rolling triumphantly out of the room.

Lookhart is now being charged for that along with unnecessarily sedating patients and Medicaid fraud.
