Dentist put on probation for sex crime charge
A Montana dentist has been put on probation by the state Board of Dentistry after the man lied on his license renewal application. He was charged with a sex crime in April 2010 and failed to disclose that disciplinary and legal action had been filed against him since his last license renewal.
The man was originally charged with sexual conduct without consent, but the charges were lessened to felony criminal endangerment. His three-year sentence was deferred after admitting to creating a risk of bodily injury to his victim.
The dentist’s license will be placed on probation for three years. The board must receive quarterly updates from his probation officer, psychotherapist, and supervising dentist.
