Dental board opens investigation of La Jolla firm

Osmolinski couple still under Pennsylvania suspension

The Dental Board of California confirmed yesterday that it has opened an investigation of La Jolla Family Dentistry.

The two top executives of the dental office, Dr. Eric Osmolinski and Dr. Jana Osmolinski, a married couple, had their licenses temporarily suspended in Pennsylvania in November. Pennsylvania's Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs confirmed to me that the temporary suspensions are still in force. The Osmolinskis had a dental office in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Among many things, Pennsylvania charged the couple with sterilizing instruments in unclean conditions in the office basement. The couple did not follow state infection control guidelines, creating "an immediate and clear danger to the public health or safety," said the bureau.

"We are not under investigation" in California, insists Dr. Jana Osmolinski in an interview, even after she was told that the state confirmed that it has opened an investigation. "We are fighting a false accusation in Pennsylvania. There will be a huge trial." She maintains that a disgruntled employee, who was fired, falsely reported the alleged problems to the state of Pennsylvania.

She claims that she was serving in a human resources capacity when the ex-employee was fired. She asserts that the firm was in California by 2013 and was not in Pennsylvania when the charges there were filed.

Thomas Weber, Pennsylvania-based lawyer for the Osmolinskis, says that the couple are suing the former owner of the Pennsylvania office. The Osmolinskis blame the former owner for any problems, if there were any.

If one has a problem with dental work(three tooth bridge-upper front) has fallen out twice. Should you contact the calif dental board or the insurance company?

clockerbob: In this case, I would go to the CA dental board, but there is no reason not to contract the insurance firm too, as long as each know you have contacted the other.The La Jolla company is under investigation as a result of its temporary suspension in Pennsylvania, still in effect.

I wonder if the ca dental board is as ineffective as the ca lawyers watch group?

Murphyjunk: I don't know if the dental board is ineffective. I really haven't dealt with the board that much. Best, Don Bauder

dentists disciplining themselves, lawyers disciplining themselves does not sound honest

July 29, 2017

Murphyjunk: In most cases, you are absolutely right. Self-discipline doesn't work well. FINRA (non-governmental) doesn't do enough in the financial field, but on the other hand, the SEC doesn't do so hot either, because pols in Congress paid off by Wall Street don't give it enough money to chase the big crooks. However, the California Bar is doing much better, I believe. Best, Don Bauder
