(CBS/AP) FRAMINGHAM, Mass - A pediatric dentist with an office in a suburban Boston has been charged with possession of child pornography.

Authorities say the images were found on 52-year-old Melvin Ehrlich's laptop computer when he sent it in for service, and the person who discovered the pictures informed police, CBS Boston reported.

Prosecutors say Ehrlich used the laptop under various user names to download and distribute commercially traded child pornography images.

Authorities say Ehrlich operates a business called Wee Care for Kids in Framingham. There is currently no evidence that any of his patients were abused.

Ehrlich, a Millis resident, was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Framingham District Court.
