Get Your Teeth Cleaned & Your Breast Rubbed @ The Dentist

    WOODLAND, Calif. - A dentist accused of fondling the breasts of 27 female patients is trying to keep his dental license by arguing that chest massages are an appropriate procedure in certain cases. Mark Anderson's lawyer says dental journals discuss the need to massage the pectoral muscles to treat a common jaw problem.

    Police say Anderson said during recorded phone calls that he routinely massaged patients' chests to treat temporo-mandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, which causes neck and head pain.
    Attorney Robert Zaro told administrative law judge Jonathan Lew at a hearing Thursday that he should let Anderson keep his dental license while disciplinary appeals proceed. Anderson would be supervised by two assistants and would no longer do the chest rubs, Zaro said.
    Zaro said Anderson, 48, of Woodland, needs to keep seeing patients so he can feed his seven children and pay for his defense.
    The judge made no immediate decision.
    Lew suspended Anderson's dental license last month. He was charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery and sexual battery. Yolo County prosecutors are investigating complaints from more than two dozen women who say they also were groped in the examining chair in the last five years.
    Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Phillips gave Lew three new complaints, including one from a 31-year-old woman who said Anderson fondled her at least six times over two years.
    She took to wearing tight shirts with high necklines, "and Anderson would still get in under her shirt and bra," according to a police report.
  2. So I'm assuming if a male patient went to him with a complaint of head and neck pain, he would perform the same massage?:confused1:
  3. Riiiiiiiiight. I'll see a LMP for a pecs massage (done the professional way), not my dentist!! Ew.

    Okay??? Will someone explain to me why this lady kept going back???:girlsigh:
  5. All I can say is that while my insurance would cover the cleaning, if he billed for the boob fondle I think the claim would be denied...
  6. eww. sickening. I hate these stories:sad:
  7. Exactly, once would have been enough for me. What a jerk that man is, pectoral massage indeed!
  8. LOLLL! :roflmfao:

    At Least
    Six Times Over Two Years
  9. Oh I heard about this story....what a scum bag!!
  10. Dang, and here I thought I could find a dentist to do both for me... j/k!!:throwup:
  11. I can SOLEMNLY swear, as a dentist, I have NEVER felt the clinical need to "massage" a patient's chest!!!!!!!!

    OMG, what a dirty pervert! HE should be struck off!
  12. Exactly!I'm in no way defending the dentist but if she found this offensive or inappropriate she would have put a stop to it the first time it happened,reported him and found herself another dentist,that's a no-brainer :nogood:.
  13. Everytime I see this on the board I get pissed...I hate the title, and what happened.
  14. 6 times in the past 2 years? I dunno what to say.
  15. Why would the person go back again and again???? It just amazes me how stupid some people are... First time, complain, file charges maybe stop this from happening to other women????
