Dental hygienist kisses patient on lips and makes unwanted comments about her gorgeous backsideBy Alexis Bell 2:11 PM February 8, 2018
A dental hygienist in Florida was banned from working alone after a woman complained that she was kissed on the lips and sexually harassed.
The Florida Department of Health has placed a restriction on the license of Alan Morales Nazareno after the female patient has filed a complaint against him.
Nazareno was slapped with the restriction for willful abuse of position.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has also launched a criminal investigation against Nazareno, but so far, no charges have been filed due to lack of evidence.
Nazareno is currently not allowed to treat any patients unless another medical professional in is the room with him.
According to the alleged victim, Nazareno was working as a dental hygienist at the Greenberg Dental & Orthodontics office when the incidents occurred.
On one occasion, Nazareno made lewd comments about “her gorgeous backside” and told her “just don’t lose that booty.”
On another occasion, Nazareno kissed the woman on the lips without permission.
Nazareno told police that he had permission to kiss the woman.
