Doctor Feelgood

a.k.a. Dr. Gropey McHappypants, D.D.S.

A dentist accused of fondling the breasts of 27 female patients is trying to keep his dental license by arguing that chest massages are an appropriate procedure in certain cases. Mark Anderson's lawyer says dental journals discuss the need to massage the pectoral muscles to treat a common jaw problem.

Police say Anderson said during recorded phone calls that he routinely massaged patients' chests to treat temporo-mandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, which causes neck and head pain.

In order to properly investigate Dr. Anderson's claim, as a Citizen-Journalist I had to perform exhaustive and thorough background research on TMJ; the causes, the treatments, etc.

And after that three minutes of Googling and skimming, I still haven't found any mention of chest massage as part of any therapy for the disorder.

Look, I'm no medical expert. But it seems fairly obvious to me that the good Doctor is a medical pioneer, developing brand-new therapeutic treatments to bring relief to the suffering. Alas, no good deed goes unpunished.

Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Phillips gave Lew three new complaints, including one from a 31-year-old woman who said Anderson fondled her at least six times over two years.

She took to wearing tight shirts with high necklines, "and Anderson would still get in under her shirt and bra," according to a police report.

I think someone needs a change of attitude. I know her type. She doesn't really want to get better. She'd rather go to the same dentist, time after time, visit after visit, attempting to thwart the healing process instead of embracing it.

Seriously, though. Come on. I hate to blame the victim. BUT...

Even at the same time she obviously knew something was wrong, she kept going back? Defensive clothing was her big strategy for dealing with this scumbag putting his hands on her?

Does this call for a "Top Ten Signs Your Doctor Might Be Sexually Abusing You" Contest thread?

You decide in the comments.
