Washington State health officials have suspended the professional license on a Newcastle dentist due to a number of charges related to inappropriate conduct and narcotics prescriptions.

According to a Washington Department of Health new release Tuesday, The Dental Quality Assurance Commission and the Department of Health have suspended the dental license of Gil Furman. Officials say Furman due to a number of unresolved charges.

The charges include the following:

In September of 2011, Furman was convicted in King County Superior Court on two counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes, gross misdemeanors. Furman molested a child from the time she was 13 years old until she was 15.

Between 2009 and 2010, Furman allegedly prescribed narcotic and non-narcotic medications to three people who weren’t his patients, and didn’t keep records for treating them.

Furman is also alleged to have prescribed at least 450 hydrocodone pills to a patient for a non-dental use between November 2011 and March 2012.

Furman has 20 days to respond to the charges and to ask for a hearing.

Health authorities say Furman cannot practice in Washington until the charges are resolved.
