An Ivy-League educated Newtown Square dentist was convicted by a federal jury this afternoon of failing to file tax returns, attempting to obstruct the IRS and filing false claims. Richard Philip Kaufman, 61, of Glen Mills, potentially faces 33-41 months in a federal lockup under preliminary advisory sentencing guidelines. U.S. District Judge Juan Sanchez set sentencing for Nov. 7. Kaufman, who had been free on bail, was taken into custody immediately after the verdict. Federal prosecutors said Kaufman had not filed a "true and accurate" federal tax return since 1992, except for an allegedly bogus one in 2008.

A Cherry Hill dentist who called himself "Amorous Stallion" online was convicted Wednesday of trying to arrange a tryst with someone he thought was a 14-year-old Pennsylvania girl, authorities said. In 2008, Jon J. Lackner began to woo a person he believed was a girl he met in an Internet chat room, said U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger. The girl actually was an undercover Bensalem police officer, Memeger said. According to court records, Lackner sent a disposable cellphone and lewd videos of himself, and asked if the girl would perform oral sex. In March 2009, he arranged a meeting at a Bensalem video store for dinner and sex. When he arrived, he was surrounded by police.

LONG POND, Pa. - Though he hasn't worked there for 51 years, hasn't lived there for decades, Doc Mattioli still owns a home in Northeast Philadelphia. For Mattioli, 85, Pocono Raceway's founder, that house at 7914 Castor Ave. remains a brick shrine. On Oct. 3, 1960, after one-too-many morning-to-midnight work days, one-too-many Parliaments, the successful dentist suffered a breakdown. Snapping his cigarettes in two as he dissolved into tears, he vowed to change. He hung up his dental gown, aligned his instruments neatly on a sterilized tray, and, at 34, walked away from his profession.

Aside from a colorful stack of magazines, a TV in the corner, and a touch of Muzak for ambience, doctors' offices have never been known for their design IQ. In fact, the nicest thing you might call them is, well, sterile. And although hospitals have invested in good design for many years now, individual medical professionals are giving aesthetics a second opinion, too, recognizing that a well-designed space can calm nerves and ease anxiety - as well as attract new patients. That means considering an MRI patient's point of view (and installing LED lights on the ceiling for entertainment)

An Easton, Pa., man was charged with endangering his 14-year-old son, who used pliers to yank two teeth from his mouth because his father would not take him to a dentist, police said Wednesday. For several months, Francisco Torres, 40, ignored his son's complaints about his teeth, said Detective Chris Miller. After his son pulled the teeth out in January, Torres allegedly still refused to take his son to a dentist. The teen eventually told someone about his problem and authorities were notified, Miller said.

DEAR ABBY: I work in a dental office. My boss (the doctor) and his assistant have a problem keeping their pants up. Every time either of them reaches for something or, God forbid, bends over - they flash their backsides. It's just bad, and both of them are pretty good-sized men. My boss is the kindest, most generous person I know. But frankly, this is an embarrassment for patients and co-workers alike. Something has to be done. Any suggestions to help us with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
