Former Dental Clinic Owner Sentenced for $1 Million Health Care, Payroll Tax Fraud

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Marshfield, Missouri, woman has been sentenced in federal court for multiple fraud schemes totaling more than $1 million that involved Medicaid payments to her dental clinics, failing to pay over payroll taxes and collecting unemployment benefits she wasn’t entitled to receive.

Pamela M. Van Drie, 59, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool on Wednesday, Oct. 9, to four years and nine months in federal prison without parole. The court also ordered Van Drie to pay $1,139,794 in restitution.

Van Drie and her husband, Lorin G. Van Drie, 60, were convicted at trial on Feb. 20, 2019, of all 40 counts contained in a federal indictment.

Pamela and Lorin Van Drie were the owners of All About Smiles, LLC, a Springfield company that provided dental services at clinics in Springfield (until it closed in November 2015), Mountain Grove, Missouri (until it closed in October 2014), and Bolivar, Missouri (until it closed in March 2014). They also owned PL Family Management Company, LLC, which managed the staff for those clinics.
