Some people really don't like going to the dentist to begin with. However, one local dentist is in some hot water and it's not over a botched root canal. This dentist from Ulster County, NY could face up to 4 years in prison and face fines of up to $250,000 dollars, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Now, by pleading guilty, this particular dentist won't ever be practicing dentistry here in New York state ever again.
The United States Attorney's Office said in a press release that the 63-year-old woman from Stone Ridge admitted to fraudulently submitting a prescription for oxycodone for one of her dentistry patients using that patient’s name and date of birth. But this wacky dentist wasn't really writing this prescription for the patient. According to officials, it was for her. Sources say the crime happened in December 2019, though the details were released Wednesday, April 13, 2022.
The Attorney's Office said that the dentist picked up the oxycodone from a pharmacy in Woodstock. Sentencing is on August 25.
