She started talking with a foreign accent. Karen Butler says it's no joke. She claims that she's a victim of foreign accent syndrome.
There are only about 60 known cases world-wide. Doctors consider it a side effect of a brain injury, and it is likely Butler suffered a mild stroke.
"If you open up your mouth somebody says 'oh where are you from? Where did you get your accent,'" said Butler. "Well I got it from my dentist in Toledo."
Doctors said it's unlikely that trauma from the oral surgery caused the stroke. They said Butler could see a speech therapist and train herself to speak like she used to.
