Federal agents, police raid NW Ga. dental office

Posted: Updated:
ROME, Ga. -

Federal agents and police raided a northwest Georgia dentist office, saying they were responding to complaints about the improper use of restraints and concerns about dental procedures on children.

Rome police said in a statement that they executed a search warrant at the children's dentistry practice in Rome on Thursday to obtain records in an ongoing criminal investigation. Police say the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was also involved in the search.

A search warrant affidavit in Floyd County Superior Court says the probe began in May 2011, when the mother of a 3-year-old girl told police her daughter was tied down and injured during an appointment.

The Rome News-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/X8kjMd) that the case involves several other families and children.

Police said no charges have been filed.
