Ex-employees say they saved dentist's syringes
Workers testify they were suspicious of Hall's actions with patients
RALEIGH - Two former employees of Cornelius dentist Dr. John Hall became suspicious of his behavior in May 2003 and, over the next few months, collected five syringes from his office that were found to contain his semen, according to testimony Saturday before the N.C. Board of Dental Examiners.
Cheryl Lynn MacLeod of Concord said she found it unusual when Hall began asking her to leave a patient's side to retrieve items that he didn't end up using, when she overheard him telling patients to "swallow" something, and when she saw him take a syringe out of his lab coat pocket while working beside a patient.
MacLeod said multiple patients remarked on the substance Hall had put in their mouths. She and Susie Hillman, Hall's former office administrator, took the five syringes from office waste containers and Hall's lab coat pockets and gave them to police.
MacLeod and Hillman testified on the second day of a public hearing on the state dental board's allegations that Hall violated dentistry's standard of care, engaged in "immoral conduct," and committed "sexual assault or battery" by asking six former patients, including a 14-year-old, to swallow his semen. Five of the six patients testified Friday about their experiences.
The dental board suspended Hall's license Nov. 5, after police began investigating the allegations brought to them by MacLeod and Hillman. In February, the board restored Hall's license with conditions, including the requirement that he cannot be alone with female patients.
After the hearing, the board's panel of five dentists will decide whether Hall can keep his license. Mecklenburg County's district attorney's office and Charlotte and Cornelius police are continuing to investigate.
Hall's lawyers say the dentist has been falsely accused by disgruntled former employees and that he was collecting his semen in the syringes because he was taking Propecia, a drug to promote hair growth. Potential side effects include low sperm count and diminished semen, according to Hall's lawyer, Emerson Thompson of Charlotte.
During his opening statement and cross-examination of witnesses, Thompson suggested the substance Hall asked patients to swallow could have been a dental product.
In a sworn deposition read aloud Saturday, Hall's former dental assistant Rhonda Hamilton described several dental products used in Hall's office and none matched how some patients described the substance.
Most of the dental products Hamilton described would have been suctioned out, not swallowed, she said, and they would have been applied to specific teeth or tissue with a brush tip, not squirted into the mouth.
When Cornelius police searched Hall's office Nov. 5, they confiscated five more syringes with Hall's semen from his desk, according to the board and hearing testimony.
The hearing, which is scheduled for at least five days, continues today and will reconvene next weekend.
I worked for years, off and on, for my dad, a dentist, and we NEVER gave patients anything to swallow. That's ridiculous.
HANG HIM HIGH.
Now open up and say Ahhhahhhhahhhhhrrrrrrhhhhgggggrrrrhhhhaaaaa
Why, of course.
Makes perfect sense.
Please rinse, now swallow.
This is a very interesting perversion.
take him out and shoot him
this is sick. "Thanks" for posting it AARRRGGGggggggg
check him for aids
The timing of these allegations are soooo suspicious. A transparent attempt to embarass former President Clinton just before he gives his comeback speech at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. No doubt the vast right wing conspiracy will try to draw parallels between a little recreational sex done by the former president in the oval office and this dentist in his office. </ sarcasm>
Wait, wait, wait. Time out on the field. At what were they disgruntled and at what point did they become "former" employees?
In all candor, I find this most disturbing.
ewwww, but its cool that a fellow Macleod called him out! :)
You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were snoozing. You'll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished.
Can you imagine what this freak does while you are sedated in this chair. ~shudder~
Its time to bring back horse-whippin'. And this qualifies.
From his website to your mou... eyes. Gives a new meaning to Sedation Dentistry.
How would he possibly think this stuff up? And they gave him his license back??
