(Scroll down for video) A dentist sent his nurse out of his room in order to molest women and girls who were under the influence of laughing gas, according to police in Australia.
Sydney police said that they have arrested 81-year-old Rodger Garry Leighton, after being accused of administering laughing gas to his patients in order to sexually assault them.
Leighton was convicted of indecent assault against 12 girls and women. He was sentenced to serve a minimum of 8 years in prison.
According to the police investigation, Leighton was a highly sought after dentist and was regarded as having a special way with children.
However, Leighton would administer laughing gas, and claimed that this was necessary for the treatment.
When the women and girls fell under the influence of the gas, he sent out his nurse from the room, and remained alone with the patients.
He then sexually assaulted them. One victim was just 10 years old when she was sexually assaulted in the dental chair.
