London, Oct 23 (ANI): An Indian dentist in Britain has been found guilty of pestering a female patient of his for sexual favours in return for discounted treatment.
Chammelle Courtney, 37, a mother-of-five, whose husband Mark suffered an asthma attack which stopped his heart and left him badly brain damaged, said her dentist Milan Shah bombarded her with calls.
"You are not getting any loving from your husband and I am not from my wife. Maybe we can help each other out," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling the court about his proposition.
Police said there was nothing they could do, and suggested she take the tapes to the General Dental Council.
They were accepted by the General Dental Council - and after a hearing last month, the dentist was struck off.
A fitness to practise panel ruled that he was guilty of charges including making the phone calls and inappropriate comments, and telling his patient root canal treatment was not available on the NHS.
Shah, of Pinner, North-West London, has 28 days to appeal. (ANI)
