    DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

    Drug Enforcement Administration


    Avi Weisfogel, D.D.S.; Decision and Order

    On November 2, 2015, the Deputy Assistant Administrator, Office of
    Diversion Control, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), issued an
    Order to Show Cause to Avi Weisfogel, D.D.S. (Registrant), of Old
    Bridge, New Jersey. GX 1, at 1. The Show Cause Order proposed the
    revocation of Registrant's Certificate of Registration BW6474580,
    pursuant to which he is authorized to dispense controlled substances in
    schedules II through V as a practitioner, the denial of any application
    to renew or modify the registration, and the denial of any application
    for any other DEA registration, on the ground that he ``do[es] not have
    authority to handle controlled substances in New Jersey, the [S]tate in
    which he is registered with the'' Agency. Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 823(f)
    and 824(a)(3)).
    More specifically, the Show Cause Order alleged that Registrant
    entered into a consent order with the New Jersey State Board of
    Dentistry (Board), pursuant to which the Board revoked his license to
    practice dentistry effective November 13, 2014. Id. The Show Cause
    Order thus alleged that Registrant is ``without authority to handle
    controlled substances in New Jersey, the State in which [he is]
    registered.'' Id. The Order thus advised Registrant that his
    registration was subject to revocation ``based upon [his] lack of
    authority to handle controlled substances in the State of New Jersey.''
    Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 802(21), 823(f) and 824(a)(3)).\1\
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Show Cause Order also notified Registrant of his right
    to request a hearing on the allegations or to submit a written
    statement in lieu of a hearing, the procedure for electing either
    option, and the consequence for failing to elect either option. GX
    1, at 2 (citing 21 CFR 1301.43).
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Having determined that Registrant was no longer practicing at his
    registered location, a Diversion Investigator obtained his residence
    address and initially attempted to serve the Show Cause Order on him by
    Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested, which was addressed to him at
    his residence. GX 6, at 1-2 (Declaration of DI). However, the mailing
    was returned unclaimed. GX 3, at 1. Subsequently, on December 4, 2015,
    the DI mailed the Show Cause Order to Registrant's residence by regular
    first class mail. GX 6, at 2. The DI averred that the Order was not
    returned as undeliverable. Id.
    In its Request for Final Agency Action, the Government advises that
    neither Registrant, nor anyone representing him, has requested a
    hearing or sent any other correspondence to DEA. Request for Final
    Agency Action, at 6. Accordingly, the Government filed its Request for
    Final Agency Action seeking the revocation of Registrant's Registration
    along with the Investigative Record to support is Request. See 21 CFR
    1301.43(d) & (e).
    Based on the Government's submission, I conclude that Registrant
    has received constitutionally adequate notice of the proceeding. See
    Jones v. Flowers, 547 U.S. 220 (2006). I find that since the date of
    service of the Order to Show Cause, 30 days have now passed, and
    neither Registrant, nor anyone purporting to represent him, has either
    requested a hearing on the allegations or submitted a written statement
    in lieu of a hearing. See 21 CFR 1301.43(a) & (c). Accordingly, I find
    that Registrant has waived his right to a hearing or to submit a
    written statement. Id. Sec. 1301.43(c) & (d). I therefore issue this
    Decision and Final Order based on the Investigative Record submitted by
    the Government. Id. Sec. 1301.43(e). I make the following findings of
    fact.

    Findings

    Registrant is the holder of DEA Certificate of Registration
    BW6474580, pursuant to which he is authorized to dispense controlled
    substances in schedules II through V, at the registered address of 30
    State Highway 18, Old Bridge, NJ. GX 2. The registration does not
    expire until May 31, 2017. Id.
    Registrant previously held a dental license issued by the New
    Jersey State Board of Dentistry. GX 5, at 1. Registrant also previously
    held a New Jersey Controlled Dangerous Substance Registration (CDS).
    However, on November 13, 2014, Registrant entered into a Consent Order
    with the Board of Dentistry in which he agreed that his dental license
    ``is hereby permanently retired [and this] is to be deemed a revocation
    of licensure.'' GX 5, at 2. As for his New Jersey CDS Registration, it
    became inactive on the same date that Registrant entered into the
    Consent Order with the Board and has since expired. According to the
    online records of the State of New Jersey, as of the date of this
    Order, Registrant's New Jersey Dentist license remains revoked. See
    also https://newjersey.mylicense.com/verification.

    Discussion

    Pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3), the Attorney General is authorized
    to suspend or revoke a registration issued under section 823, ``upon a
    finding that the Registrant . . . has had his State license . . .
    suspended [or] revoked . . . by competent State authority and is no
    longer authorized by State law to engage in the . . . dispensing of
    controlled substances.'' Moreover, DEA has repeatedly held that the
    possession of authority to dispense controlled substances under the
    laws of the State in which a practitioner engages in professional
    practice is a fundamental condition for obtaining and maintaining a
    practitioner's registration. James L. Hooper, 76 FR 71371 (2011), pet.
    for rev. denied, Hooper v. Holder, 481 Fed. Appx. 826 (4th Cir. 2012).
    This rule derives from the text of two provisions of the CSA.
    First, Congress defined ``the term `practitioner' [to] mean[ ] a . . .
    physician . . . or other person licensed, registered or otherwise
    permitted, by . . . the jurisdiction in which he practices . . . to
    distribute, dispense, [or] administer . . . a controlled substance in
    the course of professional practice.'' 21 U.S.C. 802(21). Second, in
    setting the requirements for obtaining a practitioner's registration,
    Congress directed that ``[t]he Attorney General shall register
    practitioners . . . if the applicant is authorized to dispense . . .
    controlled substances under the laws of the State in which he
    practices.'' 21 U.S.C. 823(f). Because Congress has clearly mandated
    that a practitioner possess state authority in order to be deemed a
    practitioner under the Act, DEA has held repeatedly that revocation of
    a practitioner's registration is the appropriate sanction whenever he
    is no longer authorized to dispense controlled substances under the
    laws of the State in which he practices his profession. See, e.g.,
    Calvin Ramsey, 76 FR 20034, 20036 (2011); Sheran Arden Yeates, M.D., 71
    FR 39130, 39131 (2006); Dominick A. Ricci, 58 FR 51104, 51105 (1993);
    Bobby Watts, 53 FR 11919, 11920 (1988).
    Because Registrant no longer holds authority to dispense controlled
    substances in New Jersey, the State in which he is registered with the
    Agency, I will order that his registration be revoked and that any
    pending application to renew or modify his registration be denied.

    Order

    Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and
    824(a), as well as 21 CFR 0.100(b), I order that DEA Certificate of
    Registration BW6474580, issued to Avi Weisfogel, D.D.S., be, and it
    hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending application of Avi
    Weisfogel, D.D.S, to renew or modify his

    [[Page 17739]]

    registration, be, and it hereby is, denied. This Order is effective
    April 29, 2016.

    Re: Dental Scam Artist Avi Weisfogel - Dental Sleep Masters - Dental Sleep Master and Avi Weisfogel Scam

    I know Avi Weisfogel personally and know that almost everything written here is by a scam artists by the name of Kendell Lang
    He was originally hired by Avi to bring customers to his business. Avi was wary but Kendell guaranteed him 350 attendees and came through with 1. When Avi asked for his money back as per his contract Kendell just wavered.
    It was clear that Kendell was just a scammer who took off with 270K of Avi's money. If that wasn't enough Kendell stole Avi's stuff and brought it to a competitor.
    What a weasel. Instead of being satisfied that he walked off with 270K Kendell continues to try and torment Avi
    Don't believe a word of what you read here it is pure garbage!

    Nice try Lang
