Dentist/surgeon shuts down practice

By 67AM KPUA News

A Big Island dentist and surgeon who administered anesthesia to a woman in Hilo, who plunged into a coma while having her wisdom teeth extracted on March 17th has shut down his practice.

A Hilo dentist who had referred patients to him for oral surgery said Friday was the last day of work for Dr. John Stover, who also has offices in Kona and Waimea.

Kristen Tavares, a 24-year old mother of two is presently confined at Maui Memorial Hospital, where she remains unresponsive. The state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs website shows that Stover has 12 complaints filed against him, including seven this year, with most coming after the Tavares case was publicized.
