KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)- A three-year-old girl is in critical condition following a procedure at a local dentist in Kailua, Oahu.
The mother of Finley Boyle told friends she took her daughter to Island Dentistry for Children to see Dr. Lilly Geyer on December 3 for a procedure that she was told required anesthesia. Family friends tell Hawaii News Now that Finley was given a high dose of sedatives, lidocaine and gas before she went into cardiac arrest.
Finley is now at Kapiolani Medical Center with severe brain damage. Her family has hired an attorney and is expected to talk about the case Thursday afternoon.
Checks with the state show that Dr. Geyer has no official complaints about her practice filed against her. Calls to her office were not returned, and a hand-written sign in the office window says Island Dentistry "is currently closed".
