WOODLAND, Calif. 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. Attorney Robert Zaro told administrative law judge Jonathan Lew at a hearing Thursday that he should let Anderson keep his dental license while disciplinary appeals proceed. Anderson would be supervised by two assistants and would no longer do the chest rubs, Zaro said. Zaro said Anderson, 48, of Woodland, needs to keep seeing patients so he can feed his seven children and pay for his defense. The judge made no immediate decision. Lew suspended Anderson's dental license last month. He was charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery and sexual battery. Yolo County prosecutors are investigating complaints from more than two dozen women who say they also were groped in the examining chair in the last five years. 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.

Does TMJ only affect blondes with D cups?
Six times, and all she did was wear a different shirt. Just kept going back to the same guy. Hmmmmm...
She went back to his office five times.
The behavior of some people boggles the mind.
He allegedly fondled her, but she kept going back?
Care to explain that one???
.....She took to wearing tight shirts with high necklines, “and Anderson would still get in under her shirt and bra,”......dim bulb alert!
Wonder what her boyfriend / husband thinks of this coming out now...
Inquiring dentists want to know......
She finally realized he wasn’t going to leave his wife.....
You think THIS is bad, just wait until she tells what her Plumber did to her!!!
Of course, Plumbers do it to ALL of us with service call charges ...
I figured he would have used the “conducting breast exams during dental visits” defense...... (a “community service”)
We'd just started going to this guy in January when the news broke that he, too, is a perv...
“Mark Anderson’s lawyer says dental journals discuss the need to massage the pectoral muscles to treat a common jaw problem.

LOL....this sounds like a Punk’d episode.
I could see how that pectoral massage when combined with glass or two of wine could cure lockjaw.....
Reminds me of the scene from Life of Brian where his mother tells him his father was a Roman soldier:
Brian: You mean you were raped????
Mother: Well, at first, yes.
