TOPEKA (KSNT) – A Topeka dentist has closed his office following his arrest.

Brian Dean Newell, DDS, 48, was arrested by the Topeka Police Department and subsequently charged with violation of a protection order, criminal use of weapons, criminal threat and harassment by telecom device.

Newell’s name is listed on the front of the Family & Implant Center located at 2301 SW 6th Ave. in Topeka.
