(KSL News) A Cache Valley dentist has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a patient.

A female patient claimed Matthew Lyman fondled her while she was sedated. During a preliminary hearing two other patients testified that the same thing happened to them.

Lyman originally pleaded not guilty and was preparing for trial. He changed his plea as part of a deal that also requires him to complete a state certified psycho-sexual examination.
