Dr. Anna Mackowiak is being accused of a horrific act of vengeance against her ex-boyfriend, Marek Olszewski. The Polish dentist had agreed to treat Olszewski for a toothache despite their breakup just days after they broke up. After being given a high dose of anaesthetic, Mackowiak ripped out every tooth in Olszewski’s mouth. It must be welcomed news for Dr. W.B. Galbreath that there is some other dentist who looks worse today.
Olszewski did not realize what had happened until he later undid the bandages and found that he had no teeth left.
Mackowiak does not appear to have any more legal and medical sense. She proceeded to give an interview and admit “I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions. But when I saw him lying there I just thought, ‘What a bastard.’”
What is interesting is that she only faces a possible three years? This would constitute an aggravated case of assault and battery in the states as well as tortious battery and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. If she had kicked his teeth in, it could have caused less damage but would have been treated more seriously.
In comparison, the dentist recently convicted in using paper clips in root canals faced 15 years in jail and received one jail after pleading guilty. That would seem far less serious that mutilating a patient out of anger.
Clearly, it is a poor idea to go to your recent ex for medical or dental work. However, this crime as the aggravating circumstance of abusing a position of trust.
