A Winter Park dentist was sued by relatives of Charles K. Gaal Jr. alleging that he did not take precautions to guard against dropping and losing dental tools down Gaal’s throat and failed to handle his tools properly. On October 4, 2006, the dentist, Meyers, dropped an “implant screwdriver tool” down Gaal’s throat, which Gall swallowed and consequently, had to have removed through a colonoscopy. On May 1, 2007, Meyers dropped a “mini-wrench” into Gaal’s throat, which was also swallowed. Gaal underwent multiple medical procedures and the tool was spotted in his lung. The tool was found in Gaal’s left lung.
