MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — People working in the same building on Curtis Street where Jeffery Krahling has his dentistry practice say they feel uneasy working there as long as Krahling is in the building.
“I did ask him. I said what time is your appointment for he said 8:45,” Karen Silva-Shapiro said.
The patient read the news about Krahling on his cell phone and that’s when he left the building.
“All of a sudden he looked up and he turned around and went out,” Silva-Shapiro said.

His attorney Richard Brown says Krahling has agreed not to practice dentistry pending the resolution to the criminal cases in Meriden. Krahling still showed up to his office Thursday. The Connecticut Department of Public Health said Dr. Krahling’s license is suspended and he is currently not allowed to practice in Connecticut.
News 8 has learned Krahling is no stranger to the law. In 1993, he was charged with assault with intent to murder in Maryland and was charged with several counts of battery.
Criminal defense attorney John Keefe says his client denies the accusations. Keefe says the victims may have misinterpreted what was going on. He says when inserting and removing a crown the dentist has to apply a lot of pressure depending on where the tooth is and work in a different angle.
Krahling is due in Meriden Superior Court November 21.
