Texas Dental Professional Got Tired of Potholes in the Road so He Filled Them with Dental Molds. It's a Bizarre DIY Fix

Zack Love

A Texas Dental professional did something awfully strange after construction in his neighborhood created potholes. He thought the road was private property, and thus addressed the potholes with used dental molds, but it's still strange, regardless. After ABC13 News contacted the Montgomery County Precinct 4 Commissioner's office, the potholes were filled very quickly after the dental molds were removed.

One dental professional in Texas apparently saved his used dental molds until now and filled potholes that had been on Comer Reinhart Road "for years" in a bizarre way.

ABC13 News reported that an anonymous resident in a New Caney neighborhood contacted the news station after existing potholes behind the new subdivision appeared to be filled with used dental molds, some of them had writing and even names written on them. Photos can be seen above and below.

ABC13 News contacted the Montgomery County Precinct 4 Commissioner Matt Gray's office, and he sent a crew to the location to evaluate the potholes. They fixed the potholes "within the hour" after first removing the used dental molds. Their office claims that they had never received any complaints about this pothole until now.

Roman Forest Police Chief had someone from the department speak to the dental professional and asked if he dumped the used dental molds, he did not deny doing it, but also added that "the road was his property." Montgomery County was not able to confirm this information at the time of reporting but nonetheless fixed the potholes with asphalt on Comer Reinhart Road.

The Police Chief, Stephen Carlisle said:

"Someone who had that material must have felt they were helping, I guess."

Levi Heasley, a local resident told ABC13 News:

"It's a wild thing to dump there, but if you've got a bunch of extra molds. To me, it's kind of obvious." -Levi Heasley, New Caney resident
