Sexual Harassment 101: Dentist Asks Hygienist to “Clean his Penis”

Most dental hygienists are used to cleaning parts of the body, but typically not those outside of the mouth. A dentist in Staten Island, who coincidentally cleans the teeth of “Mob Wives” stars Carla Facciolo and Drita Davanzo, recently requested a penis cleaning in addition to his teeth.

The hygienist, Joann Sclafani, told her boss Dr. Glenn Marie that she wasn’t interested in him or his advances. After which, he requested a routine teeth cleaning. When Sclafani returned to the room with the equipment she found that Dr. Marie had revealed some equipment of his own. With his penis exposed, Dr. Marie allegedly told her to “clean it”, according to a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Dr. Marie has not commented on the issue.
