NSU dental college hit with disturbing allegations that ‘large portion’ of clinical faculty aren’t properly licensed

A federal whistleblower’s complaint, withdrawn recently after the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to intervene in the case, nonetheless contains disturbing allegations of massive fraud by Nova Southeastern University and its College of Dental Medicine.

The alleged fraud involves the reputed credentials of a “large portion” of the college’s clinical faculty. According to the complaint, they either were not actual, state-licensed dentists or they lacked a required teaching permit from the Florida Department of Health issued to full-time dental instructors who only practice dentistry at a school’s teaching facilities.

NSU was accused of knowingly defrauding the government out of millions of dollars disbursed under Title IV of the Higher Education Act.
