It seems that after his fiasco in the US Dr. John Hall made his way to Belize and planned to open a clinic in San Pedro Ambergris Caye. But on the day the Oceanside Dental Clinic located at the Four Sisters Plaza on Pescador Drive was scheduled to open, it was shut down by the San Pedro Police Department. According to reports from the Ambergris Today, police received a tip about Hall’s past charges in the US and on Monday December 7th he was detained pending investigation.


The Ambergris Today reports that according to Assistant Superintendent/Deputy CEO of Police in San Pedro, Henry Jemmott, Hall’s office was closed and he was detained pending investigations on his acquisitions of a license to legally operate his practice in Belize, and having social security and work permits under different names.


Reports are that the Medical Council of Belize gave Hall a temporary registration to practice dentistry in Belize on June 22nd, 2015. That license was suspended right after investigations began.


Investigations reveal that Hall was approved a one year temporary registration to practice at Advance Dental Care with Dr. Gonzalez on St. Thomas Street in Belize City by Dr. George Gough, Chairman of the Medical Council of Belize. It also indicated that if he was to provide dental services elsewhere, it must be first supported by the Chief Dental Surgeon Dr. Rafael Samons. Investigations continue as to how he received authorization to operate in San Pedro.


Reports from the Ambergris Today indicate that a copy of the license, signed by Dr. George Gough, Chairman of the Medical Council of Belize, states Mr. Hall was approved one year temporary registration to practice at Advance Dental Care with Dr. Gonzalez on St. Thomas Street in Belize City. The license also indicated that if Hall was to provide dental services elsewhere, it had to be supported by the Chief Dental Surgeon Dr. Rafael Samons. Based on that fact police is investigating how Hall received approval to operate in San Pedro.


But that’s not the end of the story. In fact, it gets more interesting as San Pedro Police is investigating just how is it that Hall was issued a Social Security Card and Work Permit under the name of John Roberts Hall on the same date while his temporary registration was granted under the name Robert Bob Hall.


While Hall has not been charged, we understand that he will be detained until investigations have concluded.

A July 28th 2004 on line report indicates that “Former employees of a dentist claim the man made female patients unwittingly swallow his semen during visits to his office. Six former patients of Hall say he tricked them into swallowing his semen and a seventh claims he jumped on top of her in the dental chair and ‘began to gyrate against her lower body in a sexual manner.’”


As a result the state’s dental board suspended Hall's license on November 5, after police began investigating allegations by two former employees. In February, it conditionally restored his license, barring him from being alone with female patients. At that time Hall’s lawyers said the dentist had been falsely accused by disgruntled former employees and that he was collecting his semen because he was taking Propecia, a drug to promote hair growth, and was concerned about potential side effects that include low sperm count and diminished semen.


A background check at the NC State Board of Dental Examiners indicates that Dr. Hall’s North Carolina dental license has not been restored since it was initially revoked by this agency in 2004. The Ministry of Health is yet to speak on the issue.
