A German dentist who pulled out 20 teeth from a patient without good reason - and without permission - has lost his fight to keep his licence.

In what must have been the stuff of nightmares, the man awoke from a full anaesthetic to find that his dentist had removed 20 of his teeth.

The dentist was convicted of actual bodily harm, and handed an eight-month suspended sentence, but still fought to keep his licence to practise.

But the administrative court in Magdeburg, Saxony-Anhalt, on Monday rejected his appeal and confirmed he would no longer be able carry out dental work.

The dentist had shown himself to be unworthy of a dentist's licence, the court said.
