6 dentists making headlines

A dentist who urged dentists to resist the proposed Medicare expansions, and five other dentists made headlines last week:

  1. Richard Levy, DDS, wrote a letter published Oct. 7 in the Wall Street Journal urging dentists to oppose dental benefit expansions under Medicare.
  2. Kurtis Wirth, DDS, is being sued by family members of Lyle Schmidt, 57, who died after a tooth surgery in Rockford, Ill., for which he was sedated.
  3. Stewart Perim, DDS, was charged with several counts of insurance fraud after an investigation into his Salisbury, Md.-based dental office's billing practices.
  4. Stephen Skoly, DMD, was ordered by the Rhode Island Department of Health to stop seeing patients after he publicly defied the state's vaccine mandate for healthcare providers.
  5. Denis Froehlich, DDS, was arrested and has been accused of practicing dentistry out of his Black Canyon City, Ariz., home without a license.
  6. Laila Hishaw, DDS, is working to diversify dentistry through her nonprofit, Diversity in Dentistry Mentorships, which will hold its first youth summit in November.
