Feds raid Georgia children’s dental office over accusations of child endangerment–improper use of restraints

Georgia, being the “Capitol” of corrupt and child abusing dental clinics, the “shit is on” as they say, when officials start raiding clinics in that state. (Yes, I realize Texas and Colorado are alternate choices, but I choose Georgia.)

To each and every dentist working for these dental clinics, such as Kool Smiles, Small Smiles, and a whole host of other “Smiles”, here is the deal:

1. If you spent last week tied children up in papoose boards for dental care, you should drop to your knees in prayer. This is no longer going unnoticed and unreported.

2. There are people out here who are determined to see that you pay dearly for your crimes against children.

Personally, I’d like to see each and everyone of you dentists UNDER the jail – each corporate head, like Al Smiles and Michael Lindley of Small Smiles, Michael and Dan DeRose as well. Jeff Lane and Dale Mayfield, of Kool Smiles - Drs. Tran and Pham too. Each and every “regional manger” should be horse whipped in my opinion.

3. Monday, when you head in to work, you better think long and hard before you try to meet those production goals - really long and really hard. This is just a wild guess, but I bet you are someone’s “list”, and it’s not Santa’s “Nice” list either. In case you need a refresher on the AAPD guidelines here they are – AAPD Guideline on Behavior Guidance  (yeah, I realize the some of the folks who wrote these are up to their eyeballs in breaking every one of them) 


myfoxaltROME, Ga. - Federal agents and police raided a northwest Georgia dentist office, saying they were responding to complaints about the improper use of restraints and concerns about dental procedures on children.

Rome police said in a statement that they executed a search warrant at the children's dentistry practice in Rome on Thursday to obtain records in an ongoing criminal investigation. Police say the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was also involved in the search.

A search warrant affidavit in Floyd County Superior Court says the probe began in May 2011, when the mother of a 3-year-old girl told police her daughter was tied down and injured during an appointment.

The Rome News-Tribune reports ( that the case involves several other families and children.

Police said no charges have been filed.

Information from: Rome News-Tribune,

Restraining children for dental treatment guidelines from the AAPD were drastically changed in 2006, to warn dental professionals it is dangerous and risky, to say the least. If you have been doing it other than by these guidelines, I hope you…  well never mind.
