Dental hygienist Denise M. Lawrence, 40, was charged with dealing in a schedule III controlled substance and four counts of obtaining a legend drug by fraud or deceit after she allegedly posed as other women in Dr. Randall Miller’s Shelbyville, Indiana dental office to call in prescriptions for hydrocodone and other drugs over a 10-month period.
The prescriptions, 35 in total, were all ordered in Lawrence’s name for pick up but only two were actually prescribed by the dentist. More than 30 additional unauthorized prescriptions were called in by Lawrence using the names of her relatives. She was caught after a pharmacy suspicious of one of the prescriptions tipped off the police. Lawrence is free on bond.
