CRESCENT SPRINGS, Ky. — A federal raid resulted in the arrest of a Northern Kentucky dentist on Monday.
Federal agents showed up in force at the Tristate Dental Implant in the Buttermilk Crossing Shopping Center in Crescent Springs.
Agents visited the office as part of their investigation into the center’s owner, Dr. Jay Sadrinia, who’s been practicing dentistry for three decades in Northern Kentucky.
Sadrinia was arrested Monday on federal charges, including the unlawful distribution of oxycodone and morphine and distribution of morphine, resulting in death or serious bodily injury.
Those charges are outlined in a federal indictment filed Thursday.
The investigation involves the death of a 24-year-old woman in 2020. Her name was not revealed in court Thursday during a detention hearing for Sadrinia.
The prosecutor said the woman took a lethal dose of morphine that Sadrinia prescribed. Not long after a complicated dental procedure, the woman died.
