​​​​Publication Notice: Kyle I.T. Nawrot

Abbotsford, B.C.​

Posted March 9, 2020

Dr. Kyle Nawrot is registered with the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) as a general dentist. He is suspended from the practice of dentistry for nine months, from February 4 through November 3, 2020.

Backgr​​ound

Following an investigation by CDSBC, the Inquiry Committee (which oversees investigations) directed that a citation (notice of disciplinary hearing) be issued against Dr. Nawrot. A discipline hearing in Vancouver had been scheduled for March 2020, but was cancelled when Dr. Nawrot made admissions and proposed a resolution under s.37.1 of the Health Professions Act.

Adm​issions

Dr. Nawrot has admitted to professional misconduct in that, with respect to a number of patients, he​:

  • ​provided treatment and procedures that were unnecessary, excessive, inappropriate, and/or not supported by a diagnosis;
  • administered sedative agents that went beyond minimal sedation (which he was not qualified to provide);
  • provided treatment that fell below the College’s expected standards;
  • billed inappropriately for treatments;
  • failed to maintain adequate records in accordance with the College's expected standard for recordkeeping; and
  • submitted insurance claims for treatment when such treatment was unnecessary, not indicated, and/or where the documented treatment did not meet the criteria for payment. ​​

Res​​​olution

A panel of the Inquiry Committee received and considered Dr. Nawrot's proposal. In accepting the proposal from the registrant, the Inquiry committee issued an order​ (PDF) on February 4, 2020. The order states that:

  • Dr. Nawrot is reprimanded
  • Dr. Nawrot is suspended for a period of nine months (February 4 to November 3, 2020), during which time he cannot earn money from the profession or be involved in any aspect of patient care
  • Dr. Nawrot complete an education and remediation program prior to returning to practice, which includes:
    • a comprehensive assessment of his knowledge, skills and abilities with a mentor
    • preclinical remediation in the areas of endodontics, recordkeeping, tough topics, ethics and boundaries, and radiographic (X-ray) interpretation
    • mentorship and monitoring following his return to practice
  • Dr. Nawrot will have a limit on his practice so he cannot provide any sedation following his return to practice, until he completes a course and mentorship, and the College has inspected his office and is satisfied that adequate sedation monitoring, practices and emergency response measures are in place
  • Dr. Nawrot pay a fine of $30,000 within 6 months
  • Dr. Nawrot pay $4,000 to CDSBC towards the costs of the investigation
This resolves the disciplinary proceeding.
