Dentist Suspended for Letting Employees Practice Without Licences

A Winnipeg dentist had his licence suspended after he admitted to letting two of his employees to practise dentistry without a licence.

The Manitoba Dental Association charged Dr. Steven Lawson with five counts of professional misconduct in 2016 after it was discovered that he knowingly allowed two employees, Iam Lotuaco and Sheila Lotuaco, to work there for months without licences to practise in Canada.

“He acknowledges he made an error in judgment,” said lawyer John Myers, who represented Lawson.

“Nobody was harmed by what happened, but he appreciates that in a different world he would have made some different choices.”
