Teen's death after oral surgery prompts suspension of Edina dentist's license


State regulators have suspended the license of an Edina dentist whose teenage patient died last June after a procedure to have her wisdom teeth removed.

Sydney Galleger, a junior at Eden Prairie High School, went into convulsions during the June 9 surgery and was rushed to a hospital, where she died.

The Minnesota Board of Dentistry cited "imminent risk of harm" in its order against Dr. Paul Tompach of Edina Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
