Does anyone know if he is still seeing patients? I saw in the paper that his license was suspended and he was finds $10,000 for "unprofessional conduct as manifested by poor standards of care". I tried calling the office yesterday and today; but it is closed. I have been a patient of his for quite some time and I am sad to hear of this. I am hopeful that it is a misunderstanding of some type.

This makes me sad. I hope he sends out a letter to his patients to inform them of the situtation and let them know if they need to find a new dentist.

He was putting temporary crowns on teeth and billing for the real ones and would never give the people the real ones. In so much debt couldn't pay to have the real ones made. In a lot of trouble..can't bill insurance and people and not deliver the goods. Big trouble.
oh boy

That sounds like a big mess. The insurance company will go after him for sure! You cannot mess with insurance companies. Too bad for his customers.

People must have complained to BBB to have this investigated. Insurance companies are somewhat lame in catching this stuff even if a patient calls them, seriously. If this is true, how many people can you do this to before someone complains, makes no sense if thats what happened.
oh boy

I think insurance companies get pretty serious about filing false claims. It is money out of their pockets. I am sure it would also be considered insurance fraud.

Don't get me wrong, I totally agree with you. This fraud happens all of the time, believe me I know, but few providers are caught doing it unless it is brought to their attention. Medicare has been bilked for millions upon millions for fraudulent billing.

His house is in foreclosure, and he owes back taxes, was in the paper. Wow I'm glad he's running our school board. I don't know why we should be surprised, the last school board Pres impersonated the superintendent to keep some kids who got busted by the cops names out of the paper. Thank you Ron Longschlong. RIP PFC.

Seeing patients? Are yo kidding? His license has been suspended. He can't see patients. So if you are one of his patients, where do you go for emergencies? Where do you go to get your temporary crown changed to a permanent one? How do you know the crown you paid for isn't really a temporary one?

I wonder where things went wrong with him... He seemed like one of the best dentists around for years. I don't think it is possible that he could have been doing these things for very long; because it would have caught up with him pretty quickly. I wish his clients luck with finding a new dentist that they can trust.
i dont think so

I went there twice for cleanings and both times the lady cleaning them was more interested in gossiping about other PATIENTS than cleaning my teeth. And the sad part...it wasn't just her. Some of the other office staff was doing the same thing! All I know is that I will NEVER go back...i'm not going to give them the chance to gossip about me.

These issues have been going on for at least 4 years and he was still doing it in April. The guy seems like a pathological liar. The message cancelling my appointment said that "as I may know, they are under review". He's not under review, his license is suspended indefinetely for a minimum of 6 months and he's been fined $10,000.
BTW, I've been going there for over 20 years and I've never heard anyone gossip about patients. The practice has been in noticible decline for some time now.
