The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the dentistry license of Timothy Frank Kosinski, D.D.S., due to his felony convictions.

Kosinski failed to report his convictions to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code. On June 16, 2003, Kosinski was convicted in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, of one felony count of Conspiracy, five felony counts of Subscribing a False Tax return, and one felony count of Structuring Transactions to Evade Reporting Requirement.

Kosinski was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment and ordered to pay fines and assessments totaling $60,700.

On February 27, 2004, MDCH issued an order summarily suspending Kosinski’s license pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional upon the conviction of a felony. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Kosinski’s dentistry license.
