A Niagara Falls woman who allegedly refused to put on a mask in a dentist’s office and then refused to leave was charged Thursday after she smashed a hole in the wall of the waiting room, according to a Falls police report.

Officers responded to Aspen Family Dental, 1705 Pine Ave., at 10:22 a.m. after employees reported trouble with a patient.

Employees told police the woman checked in for her appointment about 10:15, and, when she was asked to put a mask on in order to comply with the dental office’s policy, became irate with staff and other customers, according to the report.
