Dentist Faces Fraud Charges for Professor Claim

Dentist fraudA California dentist may end up facing trial for fraud after advertising herself as a “USC Clinical Associate Professor.”

The dentist had been an unpaid part-time associate clinical professor at USC for two years. Five years after leaving the position, the dentist had the so-called credential on dental signage at her practice and also apparently used it in Pennysaver advertisements.

A former patient filed suit against the Anaheim dentist. At the dentist’s recommendation, the woman (who has a history of psychiatric problems) has 28 teeth removed and got dentures. When the patient was unhappy with the results, the dentist was less than sympathetic, allegedly telling the patient, “You should be glad you don’t have cancer.”

The patient also filed suit for emotional distress, but a judge dismissed that case. (In fact, the fraud case was also dismissed, but this most recent decision revives it.)
