SINGAPORE - Dentist Steven Ang Kiam Hau, who is still serving a jail term for defrauding the Central Provident Fund Board, will be struck off the Register on Friday .The doctor from Smiles Division Dental Surgeons @ Orchard Pte Ltd duped the board into disbursing $434,241 from 14 patients' Medisave accounts.The Singapore Dental Council began a hearing into his case on July 25 and Aug 6 this year. Ang, who was represented by his lawyer at the hearing, pleaded guilty to all five charges.

Ang offered patients"financial packages" where all or almost all payment would be from their Medisave account. In pleading for a lighter sentence, Ang's lawyer argued that he started the scam for altruistic reasons to help poor patients. Later, it was extended to patients who were not poor.The committee did not accept the mitigation, saying that he was driven by profit.
