Tupac dental colleague says patients seemed at risk

LOS ANGELES — A longtime Bakersfield dentist testified Tuesday that he took “no pleasure” in reporting onetime friend Dr. Robert Tupac to the California Dental Board for alleged negligence, but felt duty-bound to do so because “patients’ welfare was being harmed.”

Then, under polite grilling by Tupac’s attorney, the dentist, Robert Reed, acknowledged he had only seen two of the seven patients he named in his dental board complaints as having had care problems, that the dentists who treated the other five did not file complaints, and that he might have been exaggerating a bit when he reported there being “every week a different problem” with work Tupac performed on one patient.
