Wonder why the CDA hasn’t sued because of the waste and fraud?  Why has the CDA not taken action in house to bring an end to the waste and fraud?  Surely is it not because they are the problem and crying for a bigger piece of the pie!  Who is really behind the lawsuit?   

I’ll say it again, for the millionth time, and I’ll keep saying it, stop the abuse and fraud and there is plenty money to pay for treatment to those who need treatment.  But to stop it, dentists and dental associations have to get involved and quit leaving it to the public to fix the mess!  We can only do so much out here!!
