Kansas practice closes indefinitely after dentist arrested

A Topeka, Kan.-based dental practice has closed after the arrest of its dentist, Brian Newell, DDS, reports NBC affiliate KSNT.

The 48-year-old dentist was arrested April 19 and subsequently charged with violation of a protection order, criminal use of weapons, criminal threat and harassment by telecom device.

Dr. Newell works at the Family & Implant Center, where a message is taped to the front door saying the practice has closed and staff are "unaware when or if they will be reopening."
