A Brooklyn dentist used unlicensed people to perform dental work in his office and sent the bills to Medicaid, the New York State Attorney General’s Office alleged Friday.
Licensed dentist Joseph Shyknevsky, 46, of Brooklyn, was accused in an indictment of hiring people with no dental license and allowing them to perform dental work on Medicaid recipients, the Attorney General’s office said.
He then billed New York State for the dental work performed by the unlicensed people, the AG’s office said.
As a result of the fraud, Medicaid paid Shyknevsky more than $48,000 for unlicensed dental work performed on 110 Medicaid recipients, the AG’s office said.
