Washington D.C. Dentist Charged With Drugging and Sexually Assaulting Patients

| Nov 8, 2016 | Firm News

Former Washington dentist, Bilal Ahmed, has been criminally charged with sexually assaulting three male patients while they were anesthetized.  In 2014, Dr. Ahmed, 44, was treating a male patient at Universal Smiles DC in the 2300 block of M Street NW when the patient, after being administered nitrous oxide through a face mask, realized Ahmed was sexually assaulting him, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for District of Columbia said in a statement.

Ahmed’s dental practice’s office manager, Mahsa Azimirad, 26, of North Bethesda, who allegedly lied to a grand jury during the Ahmed investigation, was also indicted on one count of perjury, according to prosecutors.

The crimes Dr. Ahmed are accused of committing are an extraordinary violation and breach of trust.  We hope that justice is served in this case.
