Kansas dentist denied bail change, practice in limbo

A motion to modify bond for Brian Newell, DDS, has been denied after the dentist was arrested on two felony and two misdemeanor charges, reports WIBW-TV.

The 48-year-old dentist was arrested April 19 and charged with violation of a protection order, criminal use of weapons, criminal threat and harassment by telecom device. A motion to modify his bond, which is set at $100,000, was denied. A preliminary hearing has been set for July 2.

Dr. Newell works at Topeka, Kan.-based Family & Implant Dental. Immediately after his arrest, a message was taped to the center's front door saying the practice was closed and staff are "unaware when or if they will be reopening," reports KSNT.

Becker's has reached out to Family & Implant Dental for comment on current patient treatment plans and will update this article as more information becomes available.
