In an article from the Tampa area in Pasco County, Florida, there was a report regarding a dentist accused of more than $140,000 in Medicaid billing fraud. Her license has been suspended.
The 21-page arrest affidavit was filled with horror stories about botched dental care. Some of the allegations are sedating children for nonexistent cavities, having unlicensed assistants performing procedures for which they were not qualified, and dentures not fitting properly. This dentist has denied the allegations and claims she is owed $300,000 from Medicaid.
