Investigation: A three-year-old boy died during a routine procedure carried out by dentist Dr Patrick Bamgboye - the second child to die under his care
A dentist is being investigated after a three-year-old boy died on his chair during a routine cavity-filling procedure.
Juan Quiej was restrained in a cocoon-like papoose to have cavities filled at a Dental Health office in Irvington, New Jersey, on February 8.
He was given a local anaesthetic by Dr Patrick Bamgboye, 64, but the child went limp, his lips turned blue and he stopped breathing, his mother Antonia Cahchalac-Garcia told The Star-Ledger.
He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Bamgboye was already on probation following a suspension by the Board of Dentristy for the death of Kyneicha Pagan, six, who died in his care at an office in Perth Amboy in 2004.
The two children had 'completely different medical circumstances' according to lawyer Harry Levin. He noted that authorities have not yet determined what caused the three-year-old boy's death.
Like Juan, Kyneicha had been placed in a papoose and given a local anaesthetic and stopped breathing during the procedure.
But a medical examiner determined that Kyneicha had died of natural causes because she suffered from several serious medical conditions, including cerebral palsy.
The Board of Dentistry investigated her death and filed a complaint against Bamgboye in 2008, according to the newspaper.
An administrative law judge in 2010 found no gross negligence, but the board suspended him for three months in January last year and placed him on probation for an additional 21 months.
The procedure used on the boy was routine until complications arose, he added.
A lawyer for both families is pushing for Bamgboye's licence to be revoked.
The Divison of Consumer Affairs, which oversees the Board of Dentistry, is investigating.
