State Auditor takes closer look at Board of Dental Examiners


State Auditor Shad White releases details of an audit on the Mississippi State Board of Dental Examiners.

The report reveals mismanagement including noncompliance of state travel card purchases. The Auditor’s Office also found evidence the staff was allowed to drink alcohol during work hours.

In a statement White said:

“The taxpayers and licensees funding the board deserve better. I also hope this audit reminds the boards of other small agencies to take a closer look at how those agencies are being run and to engage in closer oversight if necessary.”

WJTV 12 talked to Dr. Frank Conaway, Jr. who is President of the Mississippi Dental Board. He says, “We’re making adjustments to be in compliance with all the issues that were brought up.”
