ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — William Gardner has been protesting his revocation for years, but he’s not supposed to be seeing patients in the meantime. A new filing in a criminal case against him says he’s doing just that.
Gardner’s website touts him as one of Albuquerque’s best dentists, capable of a litany of general and advanced cosmetic procedures – none of which he’s supposed to be performing.
The New Mexico Board of Dental Health Care suspended Gardner’s license, and then revoked it entirely. In a mountain of court documents, Gardner was warned not to practice his craft.
Now, a motion in a criminal case – 36 counts of tax fraud – says that “the public is endangered” and Gardner should go to jail because an undercover investigator caught Gardner still doing dentistry.
