A Merced dentist accused of sexually abusing four women had a hearing in Sacramento on Tuesday to ask for a modification on his temporarily suspended license to be able to practice with certain limitations.
The court of the state's Office of Administrative Hearings in Sacramento will issue a ruling Dec. 26, said Russ Heimerich, spokesman for the state Department of Consumer Affairs.
Heimerich said he believed the modification Sang Hyuk Park asked for was to allow him to treat only male patients with a chaperone.
Earlier this month, an administrative law judge temporarily suspended Park's license.
The attorney general's office brought a case against Park on behalf of the state's dental board because of his criminal matter pending in Merced County Superior Court.
