Dr Rashmi Patel was performing the procedure on Judith Gan, 64, on 17 February when she lost consciousness in the state of Connecticut.
Patel’s assistant had tried to stop him before calling the emergency services, according to New York Daily News. But it was too late and she had “already flat-lined”.
“Gan did not have to die to receive this dental treatment and it is because of Patel’s negligence that she died,” said a dentist reviewing the case for the state department of public health.
Patel has since had his licence revoked in the US and has been suspended, pending a further hearing next month in front of the state dental commission.
“He has been ordered to stay away from his patients after one died and another spent six days in the hospital,” state health officials said.
