National dentistry chain Dental Dreams has agreed to pay the U.S. nearly $1.4 million to settle a whistleblower’s claims that it improperly billed the Massachusetts Medicaid program, MassHealth, for “unnecessary and unjustifiable dental procedures.” The $1.375 million settlement resolves claims brought by a former Dental Dreams employee under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act (FCA). Dental Dreams is a full-service chain of dentistry clinics that operates in 10 states and the District of Columbia.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) the whistleblower lawsuit alleged that Dental Dreams overbilled the Massachusetts Medicaid program for surgical extractions of teeth and for a certain type of oral examination that was not specified.
