Apeldoorn brothers Jamrad (32) and Jahid (31) P. are in court this week to defend themselves against accusations that they molested dozens of patients, including underage girls, in their dentist practices in Deventer and Halle. According to the victims, some of them only 13-years-old, the dentist and orthodontist casually touched their breasts and buttocks while they were in the patient chair, and then pretended it was an accident, De Gelderlander reports.
An orthodontist who works in Deventer and Halle is not allowed to work on any female patients while the police and Healthcare Inspectorate are investigating reports of "inappropriate touching", RTL reports.
Several women reported that "inappropriate touching" from the orthodontist, the Healthcare Inspectorate said. It is therefore plausible that he acted inappropriately.
The ban on treating female patients will remain in place until the disciplinary court ruled on the matter.
The orthodontist denies the allegations.
