Former employee of dentist arrested on bad checks charges speaks out

Video included

Dentist Derrick Broadaway is facing four felony bad checks charges.

It is a direct result of Andrea Ross and another former employee taking action to press charges.

channel3Ross came to NewsChannel 3 when thousands of dollars’ worth of paychecks from Broadaway’s dentistry kept bouncing after close to 17 years there.

The dentistry’s former business manager says she quit when Broadaway wouldn’t make good on the checks.

Friday, Broadaway turned himself in to Chesapeake police.

Authorities released him on bond.

NewsChannel 3 began investigating Broadaway for the bounced checks.

Our investigation into Broadaway’s bad checks led us to his checkered history with the Board of Dentistry. 

This summer, the board suspended him for 60 days and fined him 20,000 dollars. The decision was made partially because of questionable root canal work done on Rosemary Rogers.

We have also learned that Broadaway is facing three medical malpractice lawsuits.

Former patients claimed he left them “disfigured” and “permanently injured.”

Derrick Broadaway, DDS–Millions in Medicaid Fraud

news8Chesapeake, Va. (WTKR) – After NewsChannel revealed former employees of Chesapeake dentist Derrick Broadaway are upset over bounced paychecks, investigator Jessica Larche uncovered millions in medical malpractice lawsuits against him.

One former patient claimed he “left a drill inside a tooth while performing a root canal” and did not tell the patient. Another said she has been “disfigured” and is “permanently injured” by dental implants Broadaway installed.

Meanwhile, Broadaway is on the heels of a $20,000 fine from the Virginia Board of Dentistry and a 60 day suspension of his license that ended in August. The sanctions, according to public records are for Broadaway’s questionable dental work. In August, his paychecks to employees kept bouncing. NewsChannel 3 confronted him about it Monday.

“Why doesn’t he feel the need to pay me?” asked former employee Andrea Ross, who said Broadaway owes her $3,800.

According to the Board of dentistry’s records, Broadaway has had problems dating back to 1998. Over the years, the board found that Broadaway performed “incomplete extractions of teeth.” Records say he “drilled too deep into a tooth” causing the patient to have a root canal. Documents also say Broadaway billed a patient’s dental insurance for work he never did.

However, the board is allowing him to stay in business under a stayed indefinite suspension, as long as he meets certain guidelines.

Broadaway has met several of the stipulations that could lead the board to revoke his license, but they have not.

All of Broadaway’s malpractice lawsuits go to trial next year.
