    For those interested, there has been a recent death from a tooth infection leading to the brain. I suppose its pretty common knowledge that tooth infections are rather scary because of their propensity to spread into the brain. The child was refused treatment due to missing paperwork and so bureaucracy strikes again.

    Video from CNN:

    If the CNN video link stops working then it can be found off CNN.com as "Dental Death" - March 5th by Gary Nurenberg
