    A former Halifax-area pediatric dentist accused of assaulting patients faces more charges than originally announced by police.

    Errol Franklyn Gaum, 79, was arraigned in Halifax provincial court Tuesday on 10 assault charges involving seven female complainants.

    That’s up from the eight charges announced by Halifax Regional Police in February.

    The offences were allegedly committed between January 1971 and June 1991 during dental procedures at Gaum's clinics in Halifax, Dartmouth and Bedford.

    Lawyer Joel Pink appeared in court for the Halifax senior and asked that the case be adjourned until August so he can review the evidence disclosed by the Crown.

    Pink said he will have to get transcripts made of the complainants' recorded police statements.

    Prosecutor Jennifer Crewe said the Crown is proceeding by indictment on the charges.

    Judge Brian Williston scheduled the case to return to court Aug. 15 for election and pleas.
