OIG Excludes Florida Dentist

On September 30, 2015, OIG excluded Howard Sheldon Schneider, DDS, from participation in all Federal health care programs because his license to practice in the State of Florida was revoked, suspended, or otherwise lost for reasons bearing on his professional competence, professional performance, or financial integrity. OIG conducted an investigation of Dr. Schneider which revealed that the State of Florida Board of Dentistry issued a Final Order for a Disciplinary Voluntary Relinquishment of his dental license after the Florida Department of Health opened an investigation into allegations of Dr. Schneider's abuse of his pediatric dental patients. Dr. Schneider cannot apply for reinstatement until his dental license is reissued by the State of Florida. Senior Counsels Geoffrey Hymans and Geeta Taylor represented OIG
