Minn. Dentist Fined $30,000 For Alleged Gropings

SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A South St. Paul dentist has been fined $30,000 by the state Board of Dentistry for allegedly groping female patients

The board says Keith Ostrosky made “suggestive, lewd, lascivious or improper advances” toward female patients while treating them between 2005 and last year.

Eight women accuse Ostrosky of touching their breasts or laying his forearm on their breasts while picking up dental tools he placed on them.

Ostrosky’s lawyer says there’s “no basis” for the claims. Attorney John Degnan says his client told the board he didn’t recall touching the woman, and if it did happen it was unintentional.

A St. Paul Pioneer Press repor
t says Ostrosky must take a professional-boundaries training course. He must also have another female in the room whenever he’s with a female patient.

    It’s a new way to distract the patient while he’s undergoing an uncomfortable procedure such as a root canal. You grope the patient and he forgets the pain in his tooth

  • Todd

    Might want to fix the front page, it says they are being fined for ‘grouping’, came here expecting a pricing fixing issue.

  • Dr. Dumb

    No wonder my testicles were sore after getting a root canal. That sneaky pervert.

    “Ostrosky must take a professional-boundaries training course.”

    Sounds like political correctness run amok.

    This only happens with Dentista’s right?

  • Sicko
