A dentist has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for nearly 50 charges including reckless endangerment and unlawful dental acts, after he filmed himself extracting a patient’s tooth while on a hoverboard.

Considering that Johnson spends hours in the gym and on the course, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he
