The dentist who damaged the teeth of tens of thousands of patients, in order to get money to repair them

In particular, between 2015 and 2019, he performed more than 700 crowns and performed more than 1,000 procedures in those two years. In fact, between 2016 and 2019 alone, it made an invoice of over $ 4.2 million for the crowns.

A district court in Wisconsin’s Eastern District (USA) has found dentist Scott Charmoli guilty of damaging the teeth of thousands of patients, according to a report on the U.S. Justice Department’s website.

The 61-year-old was convicted of five counts of health care fraud and two misrepresentations related to health issues, according to a March 10 ruling by U.S. Attorney Richard Frowling.

The text points out that Charmoli has been defrauding dental insurance companies for years with the intent to pay for unnecessary coronary procedures, which began in 2015, when he began “aggressively” selling crowns to his patients.

What is your ‘process’?

Once confirmed, he deliberately breaks their teeth with a dental drill and takes photos and X-rays of the damage. Following that, he sent these pictures to the insurers in support of their demands for payment for medical interventions.

Insurance companies consider it to reflect the condition of the teeth before surgery, so they gave what he asked for. Many of the affected patients paid significant copies for these coronary procedures.

Collected evidence shows that most licensed dentists hold more crowns than most Wisconsin dentists in crowns performed each year from 2016 to 2019.

In particular, between 2015 and 2019, he performed more than 700 crowns and performed more than 1,000 procedures in those two years. In fact, between 2016 and 2019 alone, it made an invoice of over $ 4.2 million for the crowns.

On the other hand, the evidence also shows that Charmoli made false statements when some of the dental insurers refused to pay the initial claims for coverage of coronary procedures.

The sentence against the dentist is scheduled for June 17. He faces a maximum of ten years in prison for each health fraud offense and a maximum of five years for each misrepresentation.
