SALEM, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Board of Dental Examiners has suspended the license of a Salem dentist who has been arrested on a charge of striking a young patient.

The New Hampshire attorney general’s office said Monday that John B. Bassett was charged on Aug. 13 with simple assault, accusing him of striking the child on the back, leaving a mark.

The state Board of Dental Examiners suspended his license starting on Aug. 23.

The board will hold a meeting on Sept. 10 to determine if his license will remain suspended during the investigation.

It’s unclear if Bassett is being represented by a lawyer.
