Former dentist accused of using paper clips in root canals

Posted 3:16 AM by crkota in Labels: ,
A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted a former dentist who allegedly used paper clips instead of stainless steel in root canals and then billed Medicaid for the steel.

Michael Clair, who practiced in Fall River but now lives in Maryland, is charged with assault and battery, larceny, submitting false claims to Medicaid and illegally prescribing drugs, the Associated Press writes.

Medicaid — the federal health plan for the poor — suspended Clair in 2002, prosecutors said, but he allegedly hired other dentists for his clinic and filed claims using their numbers between August 2003 and June 2005.
