(Hilo, HI) -- The Big Island dentist under fire after a recent patient ended up in a coma is dealing with new allegations. According to "Hawaii News Now," a homeless disabled veteran who went in to get one tooth pulled at Dr. John Stover's office in 2012 left in an ambulance. Curtis Wagasky died three days after the procedure. Dr. Stover's report about Wagasky said there was complications with his breathing and they used sedation on the man after he became uncooperative in the dental chair. Kristen Tavares saw Dr. Stover earlier this month to have her wisdom teeth pulled. Her family says she's now in a coma after something went wrong during the procedure.
