NCDR and DMPS - (Kool Smiles 1 and Kool Smiles 2 to merge)

Friedman Fleischer & Lowe is merging the two holding companies that own Kool Smiles PC.  Never really understood the point of having two divisions in the first place.  Doesn't matter what they do, until they stop abusing children to defraud medicaid they are still scum.

Here is a comment that came in just last night:

Thank goodness this is coming to light! I am a dental hygienist that was offered a job and turned it down after one 'working interview' due to the things I saw there. A cleaning on a child should never involve having to restrain them. For first visits, it should be a 'go with the flow' to set up a good relationship with the youngster for future visits. I was disgusted to see a 2 year old held down, forced to open his mouth in a 'quiet' room with his mother not allowed to be present. "No tears are allowed upon leaving" was what I was told, and they were smoothed over with a toy. Terrible terrible place. There is no amount of money that I could be paid to be a part of that. Worse yet- the schedule is set up to take 7 kids in a 15 min time period for 2 they stated "If they show" due to patients being unreliable. That is not enough time to PROPERLY clean and educate one child ("child" includes teenagers there). I hope they get shut down.
