A New York dentist was busted for swigging on the job.
Lindenhurst police arrested Robert Garelick after his dental assistant Kimberly Curtis and dental hygienist Dina Fara reported that he made several mistakes after drinking vodka from a sports bottle.
“I observed Dr. Garelick give [a] patient Novocain, an anesthetic for pain relief, in the wrong place in the patient’s mouth. [Then], I observed Dr. Garelick looking for the cavities on the right side of the patient’s mouth, but the cavities were on the left side,” Curtis reported.
Initially, Garelick told police that he had a few beers during lunch but later admitted that he was actually drinking vodka.
He faces misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and released on his own will.
