A suburban orthodontist has been cleared of charges he sexually abused a teenaged patient.

Dr. Ernest Panos of Harwood Heights was acquitted of similar charges in late June.

The latest case involved a 15-year old girl who said she was abused on two separate occasions.

The previous case involved a 13-year old girl who said Panos fondled her in August 2010.
