Suit Filed Against Dentist
A medical malpractice suit has been filed against a dentist who reportedly sexually abused several of his female patients.
The suit also accuses the dentist of medical negligence as well as negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The suit was filed against Mark Anderson late last week.
According to reports, 24 victims have now come forth accusing the dentist of sexual battery.
The reports have come in the aftermath of the suit filed by one of Anderson’s former patients.
Her attorney, Noel Ferris claims the dentist had her to come to his office the day of the incident and the abuse occurred for about 20 seconds until a hygienist came into the room.
Sexual Battery Common with Doctors and Patients
Ferris claims that this sort of abuse is common between medical practitioners and their patients.
“Many times the medical professional, after developing trust with the patient, can very carefully and kind of slyly begin to make you believe that certain things are part of the treatment that he needs to do for you,” explains Ferris, “and with each visit he gets a little more bold.”
