(Scroll down for video) A mother in Maryland, is angry after her son’s school pulled out teeth from her child without notifying her about it.

Shanda Flemming of Baltimore, said that her 9-year-old son Michael, came home from school with a swollen mouth.

When she asked what happened, the boy told her that a dentist came to his school and three teeth were pulled from his mouth.

The boy claimed that he was told that the dentist will only do a cleaning. As a result of the procedure, the boy missed his bus, and had to walk about a mile to get home.

Flemming complained that she was never notified about the dental procedure, but an official of the Baltimore City Schools, said that the mother signed a permission slip.

Flemming said that she thought the permission slip was just for routine dental work.
