Dentist Accused Of Lewd Acts With Young Girls In Compton Office

COMPTON (CNS/FOX 11) - A dentist suspected of committing lewd acts with two girls was arrested at his Compton office, authorities said Friday.

Dr. Mohammed Kader, 51, of Cypress was arrested Thursday at Compton Family Dentistry, said Sgt. Al Fraijo of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Special Victims Bureau.

He posted $120,000 bail Friday and was scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. Monday.

The arrest was made after the girls, one 12 and the other 17, told their parents that Kader kissed them on the lips while alone with the dentist and seated in an examination chair, Fraijo said.

The parents then reported the allegations to authorities, Fraijo said.

Kader has been practicing at the location at 1570 W. Rosecrans Ave. for two years, the sergeant said.

He was also employed from 2009 to 2013 at Western Dental and Brighten Dental offices in San Bernardino County, Fraijo said.

Kader was booked on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a minor and annoying/molesting a minor, Fraijo said.

Investigators are trying to determine if there are additional possible victims.

Anyone with information was urged to contact the Sheriff's Special Victims Bureau at (877) 710-5273. Anonymous tips can be provided by calling Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
