Rhode Island dentist has license suspended after some patients allege sexual assault

John Begg, DDS, allegedly sexually assaulted some of his patients, according to NBC affiliate WJAR.

The 85-year-old dentist was arrested Sept. 10 on a charge of second-degree sexual assault. A 68-year-old patient claims the dentist groped her during an Aug. 31 office visit at his Lincoln, R.I.-based dental practice. Detectives contacted Dr. Begg, who turned himself in.

Following the arrest, police received additional complaints against Dr. Begg and charged him with two additional counts of second-degree sexual assault, according to the Providence Journal.

Meanwhile, the Rhode Island Department of Health has suspended Dr. Begg's license.
