A Hove dentist has been jailed for two and a half years after admitting four charges of fraud.
Philip Yellowley also pleaded guilty to two charges of trying to pervert the course of justice after asking colleagues to lie to police.
The 51-year-old, who practiced at Hove Court Dental Centre in New Church Road, Hove, was struck off by the General Dental Council in April 2009.
The move followed complaints by patients about how much they had been charged for work that he had carried out.
The fraud charges against Yellowley, who lives in Norman Close, Battle, followed an investigation by Sussex Police.
