Sacramento dentist has license suspended

SACRAMENTO, CA - A Sacramento dentist has had his license to practice suspended after allegedly performing unnecessary procedures and billing insurance companies for the work.

The dentist is David Milton Lewis, DMD, says the Dental Board of California. The board suspended Lewis following its investigation of claims he performed dental work such as root canals and tooth fillings on at least 17 patients whose teeth were healthy, board spokesman Russ Heimerich said.  

Lewis is also accused of charging a dental care insurer for putting in two crowns on non-existent teeth in a patient and paying UPS employees for referrals, Heimerich said.

Lewis has a private practice on Marconi Avenue.

There will be an administrative hearing to consider the alleged violations, Heimerich said. The board is also seeking disciplinary action, including the revocation of Lewis' license.
