A Connecticut dentist must pay a $300,000 settlement after allegedly overbilling for services and allowing uncertified dental

assistants to perform procedures they were not qualified to do, according to an Oct. 1 news release from the state's attorney general.

Abbas Mohammadi, DDS, owner and operator of Manchester, Conn.-based Columbia Dental and Columbia Oral Maxillofacial

Imaging, is accused of repeatedly overcharging the Connecticut Medical Assistance Program for dental fillings that were either

never performed or were not necessary.

An investigation reportedly found evidence of dental X-rays taken by dental assistants who were not certified by the

Dental Assisting National Board. From Jan. 1, 2014, to Nov. 30, 2015, Columbia Dental routinely submitted claims for

payment to the CMAP for X-rays taken by dental assistants who were not certified to do so.
