In Baden-Württemberg, an overweight man had made an appointment with a dentist. However, it was turned down on site because it was apparently too heavy for the dental chair.
Mühlacker – Nobody likes going to the dentist. However, a man from Mühlacker in Baden-Württemberg had a particularly unpleasant experience in a practice in the city. Due to a toothache, the overweight man had made an appointment by phone. On site, however, the dentist refused treatment and gave the reason that the patient was too heavy for the treatment chair. Instead, the doctor gave him a slip of paper with a telephone number that he could use to make an appointment with a doctor for "XXL patients". As BW24 * reports, a dentist sends a man home because he weighs too much. A friend of the rejected patient was particularly annoyed that people who are very overweight have to make long journeys for a doctor's appointment.
BW24 * also reports that dentists must observe the information provided by the manufacturer of treatment chairs, otherwise they will be liable to prosecution.
* BW24 is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
