SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY — A former dentist from Long Island was convicted of Medicaid fraud and sentenced to prison, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced on Wednesday.
Dawer Nadi, 63, submitted false Medicaid claims for dental services after his dental license was revoked. Nadi was previously convicted of billing Medicaid for treating a dead patient in 2005. His residence was listed as Long Island by the attorney general, but Nadi lived in Huntington at the time of his 2005 conviction.
Nadi was convicted in August of grand larceny, unauthorized practice of dentistry, and several counts of filing false Medicaid claims. He was sentenced to 4-and-a-third to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $27,768.42 in restitution.
