The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the license to practice dentistry of Thomas Andrae Endicott, D.D.S., based on his felony conviction in the Circuit Court for Lenawee County, Michigan.

On September 14, 2005, Endicott pled guilty to and was therefore convicted of two felony counts of Health Care Fraud, and one felony count of Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance. Endicott was to be sentenced on November 16, 2005, for the convictions and has agreed to surrender his license to practice dentistry in consideration of the plea.

On November 15, 2005, MDCH issued an order summarily suspending Endicott’s license pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional’s license upon the conviction of a felony or a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years or a misdemeanor involving the illegal delivery, possession or use of a controlled substance. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Endicott’s license to practice dentistry.
