A local dentist facing charges from a March incident has been accepted into a rehabilitative program in Northampton County.

Ian Cantor, 46, of the 4500 block of Kathi Drive in Bethlehem, was accused of putting a gun to his wife's head March 31 and threatening to shoot her and himself if she called police.

Cantor was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats, simple assault and harassment.

According to court documents, charges of harassment and simple assault have been withdrawn against Cantor.


He was accepted into a six-month Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program for first-time offenders on Sept. 25 on the charge of making terroristic threats.

The ARD program is designed to rehabilitate the offender, as well as eliminating the need for trials or court proceedings.

UPDATE: According to court documents, Cantor successfully completed the ARD program and his record was expunged on March 24, 2014.
