Wisconsin Dentist Allegedly Damaged Patients’ Teeth In Health Care Fraud

Imagining finding out your teeth were intentionally damaged because a dentist was involved in a fraudulent scheme to get
insurance money.

According to PEOPLE, Scott Charmoli was indicted on Tuesday by a federal grand jury on charges related to his health care fraud and false statements.

Matthew D. Krueger announced earlier this week that Carmoli, 60, who lives in Graftonscon, Wisconsin, was involved in the scheme that dated back to 2016. The dentist told his patients that they needed a crown.

He would first damage the patient’s teeth and then take an x-ray, showing the damage to insurance companies.
Charmoli purposely damaged the teeth and the “proof” to insurance companies, making false and fraudulent claims. He made over $2 million worth of procedures for crowns from January 2018 until August 2019.

He is now facing up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and $250,00 in fines. His plea hearing is scheduled for December 30.
