Wisconsin dentist convicted of fraud after breaking patients’ teeth in sick scam

A Wisconsin dentist has been convicted of health care fraud after he purposely damaged his patients’ teeth so he could bill insurance companies for crown procedures.

Scott Charmoli, 61, was also convicted of making false statements related to health care matters in the scheme from 2015 to 2019, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

The Grafton resident attached more than 1,600 crowns over a 20-month period, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

On average, Wisconsin dentists installed fewer than six crowns per 100 patients, but in 2019, Charmoli’s rate exceeded 32 per 100 patients, an insurance company executive testified, according to the outlet.
