North Carolina is finally getting it when it comes to these fake practice management companies, who are really corporations, that own and operate clinics. Essentially practicing dentistry without a license!

However, Catherine Hughes from the Wealthy Dentist does not!

Dentists Beware: The Government May Want To Tell You How To Manage Your Practice
The North Carolina Senate recently upheld Senate Bill 655, which would require the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners to examine all business contracts entered into by dental practices in their state.

No other state in the union has implemented such restrictions on dental practice management, or sought such inclusive authority over how dentists manage their business.

Talk about the far-reaching arm of the government!

I am amused at Ms. Hughes last state, about the far-reaching arm of the Malouf 10711-Strait-Lane1government!  I could blow her friggin mind about the far reaches of the Hedge Funds arms stealing tax payer dollars, causing health care costs to skyrocket!  All so the “wealthy dentist” can live like this:

Value: $14 Million Dollars!

Of course that is only his “first” home.


From HG Radio

Here in Dallas on Strait Lane we have our own indignation, the dental empire of Dr. Richard Malouf built on our Texas Medicaid dollars.Thanks to WFAA-TV’s Byron Harris, who uncovered that the state of Texas has put out more than $400 million for pediatric braces since 2008. The money has helped with our real estate market, sort of: Dr. Malouf bought up a big mansion on Strait Lane, then the house next door (at a steal of a deal), and then Sunday Byron reported that another pediatric orthodontic millionaire has a 13,000 square foot home in Frisco with a shark painted on the bottom of his swimming pool. WFAA reports that State Senator Jane Nelson is so outraged she’s added two riders on the Health and Human Services Commission budget, both essentially calling for more oversight. And she sponsored a rider for stricter enforcement of regulations, asking the Inspector General of Health and Human Services to strengthen its ability to “detect, investigate, and prosecute abuse by dentists and orthodontists under Medicaid.” The riders were signed into law Friday by Gov. Rick Perry.

But the horse is already out of the barn. Investigations may end the gravy train, but Byron tells me that Dr. Malouf, who sold his dental clinics to a hedge fund, Valor Equity Partners, has purchased two Gulfstream jets.

Catherine, I could go on and on with cases like this!  Why don’t you take a minute and looking into what the DeRose’s and Tish Balance stole from the taxpayers of North Carolina so they could build football stadium, enormous homes and travel the world, on your dime, committing crimes.

Talk about stupid!

More about North Carolina Senate Bill 655 – with a slant of course from Catherine Hughes.  In this article she actually found someone upset that “the Dental Board would have complete control of how dentists in North Carolina run their practices”

I shit you not! Dr. Clifton Cameron is a bit upset about SB 655.

I suppose Dr. Cameron would rather a Hedge Fund on Wall Street, a banker with a rag on his head in Bahrain or say the mysterious and powerful Carlyle Group telling him how to run your practice is so much better! Really?  Please explain that one to me, Dr. Cameron.  I’m waiting!  There is a comment section below, especially for you!  Use it!  You too Catherine!
