A non-dentist owner of a Minnesota dental practice is charged with $100k of Medicaid fraud

Nadine Royter

According to the Minnesota Attorney General, Nadine Royter, 57, of Plymouth, an owner of Willow Grove Family Dental, billed for over $100,000 of services using the identity of dentist B.L. who had resigned from Willow Grove due to concerns with Royter’s unethical business practices. In one instance, Royter billed for dentures purportedly provided by B.L. to patient W.B.  W.B. told investigators he never received dentures.

A bit of digging on Ms. Royter reveals that this is not her only legal trouble. She is also facing a 2018 shoplifting charge:

Nov. 1, 2018, 400 Prairie Center Drive: Eden Prairie police responded to Von Maur at 400 Prairie Center Drive on report of a theft, according to a Hennepin County criminal complaint. Upon arrival, officers learned that a woman later identified as Nadine Royter, 57, had shoplifted items with a total value of $1,001, the complaint said. Security video showed Royter selecting items throughout the store and leaving without attempting to pay. In a search related to arrest, officers recovered the stolen items from Royter, the complaint said. She is charged with felony theft.
