Fort Myers hygienist barred from working on women after allegations

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. — A dental hygienist is out of a job and has had his license restricted after allegedly making unwanted sexual advances on patients, the Florida Department of Health said.

Five women, including four over the age of 60, accused Fort Myers resident Juan Francisco Sanchez of touching their breasts and buttocks inappropriately, according to health department documents. The women said the contact took place between December and February.

Sanchez worked at Coral Dental and Denture, 12711 McGregor Blvd.

The health department cited what it called Sanchez’s “continuous and repeated disregard” for regulations and barred him from working with female patients. A proceeding will take place that could bring about further professional consequences, the health department also said.
