Rise in Preschool Cavities Prompts Anesthesia Use - NYTimes.com – Pure bullshit!
This is RIDICULOUS!
Imagine, the story comes out of Seattle! DOCS Education’s home town!
The story quotes:
"Dr. Megann Smiley, a dentist-anesthesiologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio" SURPRISE! - Home of one of Small Smiles advisory board members and former/current office of the corrupt AAPD -Paul Cassamassmino .
The NYT is playing with the lives of children, shameful!!
Another great quote:
“We have had a huge increase in kids going to the operating room,” said Dr. Jonathan Shenkin, a pediatric dentist in Augusta, Me., and a spokesman for the American Dental Association. “We’re treating more kids more aggressively earlier.”
No shit, Sherlock! That’s why Texas is going broke, from the over aggressive fraud being committed! At least you admitted it, Dr. Shenkin!
You gotta love the last line:
"Multiple studies have shown that even children who undergo general anesthesia to treat dental decay end up with cavities again. Janine Costantini, the ambulatory practice director at Children’s Hospital Colorado, said the staff treated a 3-year-old who was making his second visit to the operating room for dental work. The boy arrived with a bottle of Coca-Cola. "
Yes, the exact same hospital where Randall Ellis of Small Smiles fame resides, as well as where Small Smiles Founder, William Mueller was head of the department! Oh and let's not forget, that Coca Cola he probably got it at pre-school... After all it was Small Smiles other founder, Dan DeRose who made that happen for the kiddies.
It’s a shame the powers that be don’t pay attention to these Pew studies. They are 3 years old or more before they release them! Half the report quoted stuff from 2007! It’s 2012 people!!!
Funny the title is “The Cost of Delay” since the data in it is so friggin “delayed” !!
Me.. FURIOUS!! Not good!
Not good at all!
