Wonder if this was designed to cut the head off the Michael DeRose head.  It is my whole heartedly belief he still profits from the Medicaid Dental Centers k/n/a Smile Starters.

Within weeks of the $10 million dollar fine/settlement he and Dr. Tish Balance signed all the clinics were amazingly sold to one of their Lead Dentists, Dr. Raf Rivera.  However, the management company remained-Root Dental Management.

In 2010 Michael DeRose was put on the no fly list, i.e. List of Excluded Individuals, where he is not to profit directly or indirectly from collecting Medicaid for services.  Well, I consider the sham in North Carolina, Dr. Michael DeRose profiting indirectly

Wonder if Roger Walters is also still involved down there?
