As Veronica Wilhelm lay sedated in a dental chair, her dentist was being filmed riding a hoverboard while he extracted her tooth.

Wilhelm says she didn't know about the hoverboard, or that her procedure in July 2016 was captured on camera. She found out only when investigators contacted her to confirm she was the patient in the video.

According to a lawsuit filed by the state of Alaska in April 2017, her dentist, Seth Lookhart, texted the clip to friends and family, joking in at least one conversation that performing oral surgery while on a hoverboard was a "new standard of care."

"I would've said, 'Hell no!' No, that's unprofessional. It's crazy," Wilhelm said.

He also offered Wilhelm a chance to address her dentist directly, according to KTUU.

"I don't have anything bad to say about you taking out my tooth, I appreciate that, but I just think that what you did was outrageous, narcissistic, you know, and crazy," she said. "I forgive you for all of that, but there's obviously a high-priced lesson that you're going to have to learn."

A phone call and voicemail to Lookhart's attorney was not immediately returned.

Aside from being accused of unprofessional care, Lookhart also faces more serious charges of medical assistance fraud, scheme to defraud and theft. Records show that his dentistry license was suspended in June 2017.
