Washington D.C. Dentist Bilal Ahmed Charged With Drugging and Sexually Assaulting Patients
A 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.
The patient report the alleged assault to police, who found two other male patients who said Ahmed sexually assaulted them after treating them with nitrous oxide. One of Ahmed’s employees also said the dentist improperly touched him, according to the statement. Ahmed was indicted on 21 counts of sexually abusing or otherwise improperly touching former patients and employees in 2013 and 2014, including 14 felony counts of sexual abuse, four misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and three misdemeanor counts of assault, prosecutors said. His dental license has been suspended.
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.
