Maureen and Gary Myers of Odessa are waiting – and have been for more than four years now.

In September 2014, their 39-year-old son Tommy went in for a cleaning at Grand Dentistry in New Port Richey.

Tommy, a special needs patient with Down Syndrome, was sedated by Dr. Veronica Thompson.

Records show that, within minutes, Tommy turned blue and suffered cardiac arrest. He was rushed to a hospital, placed on life support and died two days later.
