Wisconsin dentist who closed his practice surrenders dental license to the state: 4 fast facts

Hudson, Wis.-based La Petite Dentistry dentist Andy Mancini, DDS, closed his practice after being charged with four misdemeanors.

On top of closing his practice, Dr. Mancini recently surrendered his practicing license to the state, according to KSTP. He faces allegations of over-treating, over-billing and harassing patients.

Here are four fast facts.

1. Dr. Mancini denies all the allegations made by patients over the past three years. He surrendered his license and closed his practice in April.

2. In one complaint, Dr. Mancini allegedly threatened a pediatric patient by stating he would use "sharp" tools if the patient did not calm down.

3. Dr. Mancini also allegedly over-treated pediatric patients. Another complaint alleged Dr. Mancini treated a patient's cavities and proceeded to pull six of the patient's teeth, something that was never discussed with the patient's parents.

4. Because the practice closed, patients and their parents are worried how they will be treated. A few patients still have metal caps and spacers in their mouths.
