The Virginia Board of Dentistry has fined a Chesapeake, VA dentist $20,000 and limited his practice of dentistry in the future.
Derrick Broadway consented to a $20,000 fine after agreeing to findings of fact that he
- Created a double set of dental records for at least one patient
- Billed an insurance company using a co-dentist's identification numbers
- Performed poor dental work
Not only is Broadway subject to a fine, but he is barred from performing endodontics procedures and fixed prosthodontics on patients in the future.
According to records, Derrick Broadway has a history of problems like "incomplete extractions of teeth", and "drilling too deep into a tooth" actually causing a root canal.
