A Brandon dentist has filed a $10 million lawsuit against the state dental board alleging he is a target for disciplinary action because he runs television advertising of his dental service.
Jon Germany filed the lawsuit last week in federal court in Jackson against the executive director and members of the Mississippi State Board of Dental Examiners.
The dental board hadn’t responded to a request for comment late Tuesday.
Germany’s lawsuit comes after the board initiated disciplinary action against him and is recommending a 90-day suspension, according to his lawsuit.
