A Richmond, B.C., dentist who charged patients tens of thousands of dollars for work he didn’t do has lost his licence and been ordered to pay nearly $100,000 in fines and investigation costs.

Dr. Bin Xu has not been seen or heard from since January 2017, when he voluntarily withdrew from practice in the face of an investigation by the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C., according to a penalty decision issued last month.

This summer, the college’s inquiry committee found that he was incompetent and had committed misconduct more than 70 times in just three years. After a penalty hearing on Dec. 3, Xu’s registration has been cancelled and he’s been ordered to pay a $50,000 fine and $48,117 in costs.
