    WINTER PARK, Fla. -- A dentist in Winter Park is facing a huge fine for causing a patient's death. State officials say he dropped a dental tool into a patient's throat not once, but twice.

    The dentist has been in practice for quite a while. Dr. Wesley Meyers has been a family dentist for more than 30 years and in good standing with the state board. Now, the daughter of the man who died says Dr. Meyers should retire before someone else gets hurt.

    Charles Gaal, Jr. went to Dr. Wesley Meyers to have his lower dentures replaced. During the procedure in September of 2006, Dr. Meyers dropped a small screw driver down Gaal's throat. It was surgically removed from his colon.

    Then six months later during a follow up visit, it happened again....

    Personally, I wouldn't have gone for the follow up visit. ;)

    upset probably doesn't describe how I would feel. I think "Stabby" is more like how I would feel, or "Shooty".

    Yeah, you're right. Some of my puns are hard to swallow.

    I know!

    The only follow up should have been an attorney.
