Scam artist Joyce Trail is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence after being found guilty of fraud - and she has now been struck off the register by the General Dental Council.
The GDC's Professional Conduct Committee heard that between April 2006 and March 2009, she submitted a staggering 7,141 fraudulent claims for payment to the NHS.
- Pain treatment for patients she had not treated
- Fitting dentures to people who did not need them
- Fitting dentures to people who were not entitled to have their treatment paid for by the NHS
- Provision of dentures to people who, it turned out, were dead
In total, £1,376,423 was paid to Trail that she was not entitled to.
