Florida’s Paediatric Dentist Voluntarily Surrenders License to Practice in State

A Florida dentist has been accused of performing unneeded tooth extractions and surgical procedures without giving anesthesia.

Last month, around 15 protestors carried signs outside Howard Schneider's dental clinic on University Boulevard South in Jacksonville protesting his way of practicing. The Flordia Department of Health announced that Howard has surrendered his license to practice in Flordia.

Howard has also been blamed for wearing scare dresses and threatening children with statement like ‘your mom will die if you tell her what happened’, More than 60 former patients have now joined the lawsuit filed against Howard.

Lately, an attorney representing many patients has also filed class action lawsuit against the dentist for medical malpractice. Earlier, he has faced two malpractice lawsuits. One of them was dismissed and other was settled.

The Florida attorney general's fraud unit has even carried out an investigation into the matter. Authorities concerned have been working to shut down Howard’s clinic. Howard is the only children’s dentist in Jacksonville who took Medicaid. Therefore, his practice attracted poorer clients, unveiled the lawsuit.
