A jilted dentist who pulled out all her boyfriend's teeth after he dumped her for another woman is facing three years in jail in Wroclaw, Poland.
Anna Mackowiak, 34, was astonished when just days after breaking up with her, Marek Olszewski, 45, turned up at her surgery complaining of tooth ache.
"I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions.
"But when I saw him lying there I just thought, 'What a bastard' and decided to take all his teeth out," she admitted.
After putting him to sleep with a heavy dose of anesthetic, the spurned dentist locked the door and then began plucking his teeth out one by one.
She then wrapped his head and jaw in bandage to prevent him opening his mouth and told him there had been complications and he would need to see a specialist.
Toothless cabbie Marek said: "I knew something was wrong because when I woke up I couldn’t feel any teeth and my jaw was strapped up with bandages.
"She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that I would need to see a specialist.
"I didn’t have any reason to doubt her, I mean I thought she was a professional.
"But when I got home I looked in the mirror and couldn’t f***ing believe it.
"The b**ch had emptied my mouth.
"The new girlfriend has now left me saying she can’t be with a man without teeth.
"And I’m going to have to pay a fortune on getting indents or something," he said.
Prosecutors say the dentist is being investigated for medical malpractice and abusing the trust of a patient.
