Clear Creek Alaska Dentist, Seth Lockhart sentenced to 12 years in prison for extracting tooth on hoverboard



Clare Creek, Alaska dentist, Seth Lockhart has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for fabricating teeth on a snowboard.

The Anchorage Daily News reported that Seth was sentenced to prison Monday in Anchorage High Court on dozens of charges that followed his bizarre behaviour in defrauding Medicaid and removing a patient’s teeth without his permission.

He was convicted last January on charges of endangerment, illegal dental practice and medical aid fraud.

Judge Michael Wolverton said at the ruling: “On reviewing all of this over and over again, I have a deep reaction – I’ve come close to killing some people.”


The court heard testimony at his trial from patient Veronica Wilhelm, who was drugged when he was recorded getting her teeth removed on a flying board in July 2016.

In the mobile video, Lockhart can be seen turning away from the action with his hands triumphant in the air.

He reportedly shared a video of the ruse to at least eight people, joking that it was a “new standard of care,” NBC News reported.

The Anchorage Daily News reported that Lockhart – whose dental license was suspended in 2017 – was also ordered by a judge not to practice medicine during a 10-year probation period once he was released from prison.
