B.C. Dentist Suspended Over ‘Unnecessary, Excessive, Inappropriate’ Treatments

An Abbotsford dentist has been suspended for nine months for allegedly giving patients expensive, unnecessary treatments.

In a discipline notice posted Monday, the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) — which regulates dentists’ professional conduct — said Dr. Kyle Nawrot admitted to professional misconduct following an investigation.

Narwot admitted to multiple instances of misconduct, including providing treatment that fell below the CDSBC’s standards and failing to maintain proper records.

He also acknowledged providing “treatment and procedures that were unnecessary, excessive, inappropriate, and/or not supported by a diagnosis,” billing inappropriately for treatments and submitting insurance claims for treatment when the treatment was unnecessary.
