Montreal Dentist Found Guilty of Sexual Misconduct Banned From Practising for 2 Years

A Montreal dentist has been banned from practising for two years after he was found guilty of sexual misconduct by the disciplinary council of the Ordre des Dentistes du Québec.

Last February, that disciplinary council concluded Nareg Apelian had repeatedly touched a former patient’s breasts during treatment.

His suspension went into effect last November.

“I’m disappointed that it was only two years,” said the victim, who cannot be named due to a publication ban to protect her identity.

At the time of the incident in November 2016, she was a 21-year-old McGill University student and Apelian’s patient at the dental clinic on campus.
