  • These people were doing unnecessary procedures on childrens teeth to collect the money from insurance companies. Especially Medicaid which doesnt pay alot for each procedure so they were subjecting kids to long bouts in the dentist chairs being tied down and traumitized. One boy had 16 root canals in one sitting and was strapped to a board while he screamed the entire time. It was terrible to hear about, I cant imagine what its would have been like to be there. And shame on the people that went along with it. Unbelivable!

  • Thats horrible! wow! How could they do such a thing to the poor kids..I feel so bad for those poor kids.I hope the parents sue the dentist, and the practice closes down. And the dentist rots in hell. That is just not right.

  • What parent would allow that? Seems like more to the story.

  • Google Small Smiles and read some of the parent responses to this snake. Someone has to give these poor LITTLE INNOCENT victims a voice.
